New York: In a speech that reflected India’s elevated global stature, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked the global community to join hands to fight the scourge of terrorism.
What was significant he spoke about the sense of anger people have because of terrorism.
From India’s commitment to climate change, sanitation and India’s lead in providing a fresh direction to multilateralism and the UN, the PM’s address came across that of a statesman in contrast to Pakistan PM Imran Khan who played an old record of India bashing.
The significance of the PM’s speech was also hailed by those present in the plenary hall when he spoke about India’s initiative to ban single-use plastic to his statement that India is the land of Buddha doesn’t want war.

A clear message to the world that Imran Khan’s nuclear war bogey was without any basis. He didn’t name Pakistan or any other country but his speech had enough of strategic heft and painted a strategic road map that India wants in the new global order.
