#WATCH Today, people of India are concerned whether this reform-process will ever reach its logical conclusion. For how long will India be kept out of the decision-making structures of the United Nations?: PM Modi at UNGA #ModiAtUN pic.twitter.com/vfFR9Gqj0j— ANI (@ANI) September 26, 2020
Terrorism took away millions of lives
The Prime Minister said without naming China and Pakistan that it is true that there has not been a Third World War, but it cannot be denied that there have been many wars, many civil wars. Rivers of blood flowed in any number of terrorist attacks. Millions of innocent children who were supposed to dominate the world. Due to these attacks and wars, the world left. How many people had to lose the capital of their lifetime… had to leave their dream home. The Prime Minister asked whether the efforts of the United Nations at that time and now are sufficient.
Strongly advocated for reforms in the United Nations
The Prime Minister said that it has been eight to nine months since the whole world is suffering from Corona epidemic. Where is the United Nations in its efforts to combat this epidemic? Where is an effective accountability? Today, there is a big question in front of the whole world community, is the form of the institution that was formed under the circumstances then relevant even today? The Prime Minister said that if we evaluate the achievements of the United Nations in the last 75 years, there is no doubt that their number is considerable. But at present, there are many such examples which also show the need for serious introspection to the United Nations.
United Nations changes are needed today
Prime Minister Modi said that the change in the United Nations reactions, arrangements and its form is the demand of today. The people of India have been waiting for the completion of the reform process at the United Nations. The people of India are worried whether this process will ever reach its end. How long will India be kept out of the decision-making framework of the United Nations. India is the largest democracy in the world. India is a country where more than 18 percent of the world's population lives. A country where there are hundreds of languages, hundreds of dialects, many creeds, many ideologies. The country where the changes are taking effect on a large part of the world, how long will it have to wait?
We consider the whole world as one family
Prime Minister Modi said that we consider the whole world as one family. It is part of our culture, culture and thinking. Even in the United Nations, India has always given priority to world welfare. When India extends the hand of friendship to someone, it is not against any third country. When India strengthens the development partnership, there is no thought of forcing a partner country behind it. We never lag behind in sharing experiences from our development journey. In this difficult time of the epidemic, India's pharmaceutical industry has sent essential medicines to more than 150 countries.
India committed to removing the world from epidemic
The Prime Minister said that today, as the world's largest vaccine producing country, I want to give confidence to the world. India's production of vaccine and its supply capacity will serve to bring humanity out of this crisis. We will use the prestige and experience of being the largest democracy in the world for world interest. Our path is from Janakalyan to Jagakalyan. The voice of India will always rise for peace, security, and prosperity. The voice of India will arise for the wish of humanity, mankind. India's voice will rise against terrorism, illegal arms smuggling, drugs, money laundering.
India is running with the mantra of Reform Perform and Transform
The Prime Minister said that India's cultural heritage, culture, thousands of years of experience will always give strength to developing countries. Over the past few years, with the mantra of Reform Performance and Transform, India has brought major changes in the lives of crores of Indians. These experiences are as useful for many countries in the world as for us. It was not easy to connect more than 400 million people in the banking system in just 4-5 years. But India showed this by doing so. In just 4-5 years, it was not easy to make 600 million people free from open defecation, but India did it.
Moving forward on the goal of self-reliant India
Prime Minister Modi said that after the circumstances created after the epidemic, we are moving forward towards the goal of self-reliant India. Self-reliant India campaign will also give strength to global economy. In India, it is being ensured that the benefits of all schemes reach every citizen without any discrimination. Large-scale efforts are going on in India to promote women empowerment. Today, women of India are taking maximum benefit of the world's largest micro financing scheme.
Government achievements also counted
The Prime Minister said that India is one of the countries where women are being given 26 weeks of paid maternity leave. Today India is among the leading countries in the world in terms of digital transactions. Today India is ensuring the improvement and transparency by giving digital access to its millions of citizens. Today, India is running a campaign to deliver drinking water from pipes to 150 million homes in its villages. A few days ago, India has launched a huge plan to connect its six lakh villages with broadband optical fiber.
