New Delhi. Addressing the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid tribute to all those who lost their lives in the Kovid-19 epidemic and expressed his condolences to the families of the victims. Addressing the session, PM Modi first congratulated Abdullah Shahid for assuming the presidency of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
PM Modi also indirectly attacked Pakistan for sponsored terrorism and said that the countries which are using terrorism as politics will also have to bear the brunt of it. Along with this, he also asked to ensure that the soil of Afghanistan is not used for terrorist activities against any country.
Big highlights of PM Modi’s address at UNGA:
For the last one and a half years, the whole world is facing the biggest pandemic in 100 years. I pay tribute to all those who lost their lives in such a terrible pandemic and express my condolences with the families.
I am representing a country which has the pride of Mother of Democracy. We have a great tradition of thousands of years of democracy. On this 15th August, India entered the 75th year of its independence.
Our diversity is the hallmark of our strong democracy. A country in which there are dozens of languages, hundreds of dialects, different living habits, food and drink. This is an example of Vibrant Democracy.
It is the strength of India’s democracy that a small child who once helped his father at the tea stall of a railway station is addressing UNGA for the fourth time today as the Prime Minister of India.
Covin, India’s vaccine delivery platform, is providing digital assistance to administer hundreds of millions of vaccine doses in a single day. I want to inform UNGA that India has developed the world’s first DNA vaccine which can be administered to all people above 12 years of age.
Scientists in India are also engaged in the development of a nasal vaccine. Realizing its obligation towards humanity, India has once again started giving vaccines to the needy of the world. Today I also invite vaccine manufacturers from all over the world to come and make vaccines in India.
Polluted water is a big problem not only in India but in the whole world and especially in poor and developing countries. To meet this challenge in India, we are running a huge campaign to provide clean piped water to more than 170 million homes.
With regressive thinking, countries that are using terrorism as a political tool must understand that terrorism is an equally great threat to them. It is very important to ensure that the soil of Afghanistan is not used for spreading terrorism and terrorist attacks. We also have to be careful that no country tries to use delicate situations as a tool for its selfishness.
Our oceans are also our common heritage, so we have to keep in mind that we use ocean resources and not abuse. Our seas are also the lifeline of international trade. We have to save them from the race of expansion and exclusion.
If the United Nations has to keep itself relevant, it has to improve its effectiveness, increase its reliability. Many types of questions are being raised on the UN today.
