Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York on Saturday. He started his speech by saying, “The strength of India’s democracy lies in the fact that a boy, who once sold tea at a railway station, is addressing the United Nations for the fourth time today.” In his address, the PM talked about the Covid-19 vaccine made in India to the current situation in Afghanistan. In the meantime, without naming Pakistan and China, he also gave advice to both.
Earlier, the Prime Minister also accepted the greetings of a large number of Indians present outside his hotel, who welcomed him with slogans of “Vande Mataram” and “Bharat Mata ki Jai”. After having his first bilateral meeting with US President Joe Biden in the Oval Office of the White House, Modi flew from Washington to New York and attended his first personal QUAD summit on Friday.
