ভারত এগিয়ে গেলে বিশ্ব এগোয়। ভারত সংস্কার করলে বিশ্বে পরিবর্তন আসে: প্রধানমন্ত্রী মোদী
স্বাধীনতার ৭৫ বছর উপলক্ষে ৭৫টি উপগ্রহ পাঠাতে চলেছে ভারত। যা তৈরি করছে স্কুল-কলেজের পড়ুয়ারা: প্রধানমন্ত্রী মোদী
সন্ত্রাসবাদকে যে দেশ রাজনৈতিক হাতিয়ার হিসাবে ব্যবহার করছে, তাদের বুঝতে হবে সন্ত্রাসবাদ তাদের জন্যও বিপজ্জনক। এটা সুনিশ্চিত করা জরুরী আফগানিস্তানের মাটিকে যেন সন্ত্রাসের জন্য বা সন্ত্রাস ছড়ানোর জন্য ব্যবহার করা না হয়: প্রধানমন্ত্রী
বিশ্বব্যাপী আইন, মূল্যবোধ এবং শৃঙ্খলা রক্ষার স্বার্থে রাষ্ট্রপুঞ্জের কার্যপদ্ধতিতে নিরন্তর সংস্কার আনার প্রয়োজন রয়েছে: প্রধানমন্ত্রী

Namaskar
Hon'ble Mr. President,

It is a great honour for me to address the 74th Session of the United Nations on behalf of 1.3 billion Indians.

It is a very special occasion, also, because this year, the entire world is celebrating the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

His message of truth and non-violence is very relevant for us even today, for peace , development and progress in the world.

Mr President,

This year, the world’s biggest election took place. In the world’s biggest democracy , the highest ever number of voters voted me and my government into power for a second term with an even stronger mandate than before.

And it is thanks to this mandate that I am standing here before you once again.

However, the message that this mandate conveys has an even greater significance, a wider and more inspiring one.

Mr President,

When a developing country is able to successfully implement the world’s biggest sanitation campaign, building over 110 million toilets in just 5 years for its countrymen, all its achievements and outcomes are an inspirational message for the entire world.

When a developing country, successfully runs the world’s biggest health insurance scheme, giving 500 million people the facility of an annual health cover of 500,000 Rs for free treatment; the achievements and responsive systems that result from this scheme show the world a new path.

When a developing country, successfully runs the world’s biggest financial inclusion scheme, opening over more than 370 million bank accounts for the poor in just 5 years, the systems that result, build confidence in the poor across the entire world.

When a developing country, launches for its citizens, the world’s biggest digital identification program, giving them a biometric identity , thereby ensuring they can avail their rights, and saves more than 20 billion dollars by checking corruption, the modern systems that result from it, give the world a new hope.

Mr President,

As I came in here, on a wall at the entrance to this building, I noticed the sign, 'no more single use plastic' I am pleased to inform this assembly that even as I am addressing you today, a very large campaign is being implemented across the entire country to make India free of single use plastic.

In the next 5 years, apart from promoting water conservation, we are going to ensure water supply to 150 million homes.

In the next 5 years, we are going to build over 125,000 kilometers of new roads.

By the year 2022, when India celebrates its 75th Independence day, we plan to build 20 million houses for the poor.

Though the world may have set itself the target of eradicating TB by 2030, in India we are working towards eradicating it by 2025.

The question that arises is just how have we been able to achieve all of this. How is it that such rapid changes are taking place in India?

Mr. President,

India is a great culture that is thousands of years old, a culture that has its own vibrant traditions, and which encompass universal dreams. Our values and culture see divinity in every being and strive for the inclusive welfare of all.

Therefore, The very core of our approach is public welfare through public participation and this public welfare is not just for India but for the entire world.

And that is the reason we draw inspiration from our motto : Collective efforts , for growth of all, with everyone’s trust (sabka sath, sabka vikas, sabka vishwas).

And this too, is not confined within the borders of India.

Our endeavours, are neither an expression of pity, nor a pretense. They are inspired by a sense of duty, and duty alone.

All our endeavours, are centered on 1.3 billion Indians. But the dreams that these efforts are trying to fulfill, are the same dreams that the entire world has, that every country has, and that every society has.

The efforts are ours, but their fruits are for all, for the entire world.

And this conviction of mine, gets stronger every day, when I think of those countries, who, just like India, are striving for development, each in their own way.

When I hear about their joys and sorrows, when I get to know about their dreams, my resolve to develop my country at a faster pace gets even stronger, so that India’s experience can be beneficial to these countries.

Mr. President,

3000 years ago, a great poet of India, Kariyan Pungun-dra-naar, wrote in Tamil the most ancient language of the world:

"Ya-dum, Oo-ray, Yaav-rum Ke-rir”

which means We belong to all places, and to everyone.

This sense of belonging beyond borders, is unique to India.

In the last 5 years, India has worked towards strengthening its centuries old great tradition of fraternity among nations and welfare of the world, which is indeed, in line with the key objectives of the United Nations.

The issues that India raises, the kind of new global platforms that India has come forward to build, seek collective efforts to address serious global challenges and issues.

Mr. President,

If you look at it from a historic and per capita emission perspective, India’s contribution to Global Warming is very low.

However, India is one of the leading nations when it comes to taking steps to address this issue.

On one hand, we are working towards achieving the target of 450 Giga Watts of renewable energy, and on the other hand, we have also taken the initiative to create the International Solar Alliance.

One of the effects of Global Warming is the increasing number and severity of natural disasters, and at the same time they are appearing in new areas and in new forms.

In view of this, India has initiated the formation of the "Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure” (CDRI). This coalition will help build infrastructure which can withstand natural disasters.

Mr. President,

The largest number of sacrifices made by soldiers of any country for UN Peace keeping missions is from India.

We belong to a country, that has given the world, not war, but Buddha’s message of peace.

And that is the reason why, our voice against terrorism, to alert the world about this evil, rings with seriousness and the outrage.

We believe, that this is one of the biggest challenges, not for any single country, but for the entire world and humanity.

The lack of unanimity amongst us on the issue of terrorism, dents those very principles, that are the basis for the creation of the U.N.

And that is why, for the sake of humanity, I firmly believe, that it is absolutely imperative, that the world unites against terrorism, and that the world stands as one against terrorism.

Mr. President

The face of the world is changing today.

Modern technology in the 21st Century, is bringing about sweeping changes in social life, personal life, economy, security, connectivity and international relations.

In such a situation, not a fragmented world, is in the interest of no one. Neither do we have the option to confine ourselves within our boundaries.

In this new era, we will have to give new direction and energy to Multilateralism, and to the United Nations.

Mr. President,

One Hundred and Twenty Five years ago, the Great Spiritual Guru, Swami Vivekananda, gave this message to the world during the World Parliament of Religions in Chicago.

The message was, "Harmony and Peace…. And NOT Dissension”.

Today, the message from the world’s largest democracy, for the International community is still the same: "Harmony and Peace”.

Thank you Very much.

Parliament session should be judged on work done and discussions held, not disruptions: PM

Namaskar friends,

This session of Parliament is very important. The country is celebrating the Amrit Mahotsav of freedom. Ordinary citizens from across India are pitching in by organizing several programs and taking steps to fulfill the dreams of the freedom fighters in the public and national interest during the Amrit Mahotsav of freedom. These stories are a good sign for the bright future of India.

Recently, the entire country made a resolution on Constitution Day to fulfill the spirit of the Constitution with a new resolution. In this context, all of us and every citizen of the country would like this session and subsequent sessions of Parliament to hold discussions in the interest of the country and find new ways for the development of the country according to the spirit of the freedom fighters and the Amrit Mahotsav of freedom. This session should be rich in ideas and positive debates should have far-reaching impact. I hope the Parliament should be judged how it functions and its significant contributions rather than who disrupted Parliament forcefully. This cannot be the benchmark. The benchmark would be how many hours the Parliament worked and how much positive work was done. The government is willing to discuss every issue with an open mind. The government is ready to answer every question. And we would like that there should be questions in Parliament and peace should also prevail.

Voices against government policies should be forceful but the dignity of Parliament and the Chair should be upheld. We should maintain the sort of conduct that will inspire younger generations. Since the last session, the country has administered more than 100 crore Covid vaccine doses and we are now moving fast towards the figure of 150 crores. We should be alert to the new variant. I also request all the members of Parliament and to you also to be alert, because everyone’s health is our priority in this hour of crisis.

A scheme to provide food grains free of cost under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana is going on so that more than 80 crore citizens of the country do not suffer any more during this Corona period. Now it has been extended till March 2022. The scheme costing about 2.60 lakh crore rupees takes care of the concerns of more than 80 crore countrymen so that the stove of the poor keeps on burning. I hope we take expeditious decisions together in the interest of the country in this session and fulfill the wishes and expectations of the common man. This is my expectation. Thank you very much.
