In his address, PM Modi urged the international community to give a new direction to multilateralism. The Prime Minister also made a case for sustainable economic growth and inclusive societal development while effectively fighting forces of terrorism. 

The Prime Minister highlighted the huge transformation brought about by the pro-people initiatives of the Government such as Swachh Bharat, Ayushman Bharat, Jan Dhan Yojana and Digital Identification (Aadhaar). He also added that when India champions such initiatives, it instills hope internationally. “We are working not just for the welfare of our people, but for the welfare of the entire world. That is why our motto is Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas’ (Together with All, Development for All, Trust in All),” PM Modi added.

Emphasizing on Indian culture, PM Modi reiterated that public welfare through public participation is the mantra of his government. He also mentioned India’s commitment towards eliminating single use plastic.

Terming terrorism as the biggest challenge for the world, PM Modi urged all nations to unite against it for the sake of humanity. He also underlined India’s contribution to the United Nation peacekeeping mission.

PM Modi urged the international community to give a new direction to multilateralism. He said that in the current era, countries do not have the luxury to confine themselves within their borders. He invoked the quotes of Tamil philosopher Kaniyan Pungundranar and Swami Vivekananda to seek collective action to address various global challenges. 

Speaking about global warming, Prime Minister said that even though India’s contribution towards global warming in terms of per-capita emissions is very low, India is at the forefront of the response against it. In this context, he elaborated on the steps taken by the government, including the 450 GW of renewable energy target and the formation of the International Solar Alliance. All in all, an inspiring speech that is sure to further establish India as a leader in the eyes of the international community.
