New York, Sept 27 : “A world divided by terrorism hurts the basis for the formation of United Nations. If we look through the history and on the base of per capita emissions, India’s contribution to global warming has been very less. India has strengthened the belief of universal brotherhood,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in his address to UN General Assembly.
“India’s message to the world community today is the same as Swami Vivekananda’s message to the world in Chicago many years ago – ‘Harmony and peace. For the sake of humanity, all the world has to unite against terror. A world divided by terrorism hurts the basis for the formation of UN.”
Modi said, “This opportunity to address UNGA is special because this year world is celebrating 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.”
“When a developing country successfully runs world’s largest health insurance scheme, it shows a new direction to the world. We are running a massive campaign to stop single-use plastic in India,” he added.
He further said, “When a developing country runs the world’s largest digital identification program, ensures its citizens’ rights, ends corruption, the system created along with it presents a new hope to the world.”
“The world’s largest democracy voted for my govt & me. We came back to power with a bigger majority and because of this mandate I am here today,” he said.
“We are working to make India TB-free by 2025. Jan Kalyan with the help Jan Bhagidari our motto. Jan Kalyan with the help Jan Bhagidari our motto,” he added.
