posted in: Indian Defense 0

Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed the strength of India’s diverse and
vibrant democracy during his address at the 76th session of the United Nations
General Assembly on Saturday (September 25).

In his opening remarks, striking a personal note, PM Modi said that the child
of a poor tea-seller rose to the country’s highest political office and
addressed the UN for the fourth time, calling it the strength of Indian
democracy.

“I represent a country which is known as the ‘Mother of Democracy’. India is a
great example of a vibrant democracy. Our democracy is recognised for its
diversity. Democracy has been India’s great tradition for thousands of years.”

PM Modi began his speech by giving tribute to those who lost their lives due
to Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and expressed condolences to the bereaved
families.

He said, “For the last one and a half years, the world has been grappling with
the worst pandemic it has seen in 100 years. I pay tribute to all those who
have lost their lives in this deadly pandemic and I express my condolences to
their families.”

During his speech, PM Modi touched upon a range of issues of global concern
such as climate change, terrorism and Covid vaccines.

PM Modi arrived in New York after attending his first in-person Quad summit
with leaders from Australia, Japan and the US in Washington. The Prime
Minister also met US President Joe Biden for their first bilateral meeting at
the Oval Office of the White House.

Modi had last addressed the UN General Assembly session in 2019 as last year
it was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with world leaders had
submitted pre-recorded video statements for the United Nations General
Assembly session.

After his address to the General Assembly, Modi will return to India.
