President Ram Nath Kovind today exhorted students to become job creators rather than job seekers by unleashing their entrepreneurial spirit.  
Addressing the 7th Convocation of Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University here, Mr Kovind advised them to follow ethics and principles to attain true success in whichever walk of life they chose. He said there could be no ambiguity or scope for argument on ethics, he added.
While the country is making rapid progress, more needed to be done on specific social and economic challenges as well as in the areas of science and technology. When the country moves forward, he said, every citizen benefits and gets opportunities for personal development.
The President noted that the University has taken various steps to highlight social concerns and provide access to the disadvantaged. It has provided for reservations for single girl children as well as students with serious ailments.
It has also adopted villages near the University and worked with the local community on education and development – and connected local people to the University’s Innovators' Club.
He appreciated such efforts, calling them an example of the students’ sensitivity and sense of responsibility. The President also inaugurated Ambedkar Bhawan on the University campus.
