In our joint fight against COVID, we have extended medical and other assistance to over 150 countries.”

“India is home to one-sixth of humanity. We are mindful of our weight and responsibility.

In his address to the United Nations, PM Modi recalled India’s contributions in the ECOSOC: “India was among the 50 founding members of the United Nations immediately after the Second World War.

A lot has changed since then,” he said, adding “from the very beginning, India has actively supported the UN’s development work and the ECOSOC. The first president of ECOSOC was an Indian. India also contributed to shaping the ECOSOC agenda.”

We know that if India succeeds in achieving its development objectives, it will go a long way in achievement of global goals,” he said.
He spoke at the valedictory session along with his Norweign counterpart Erna Solberg and UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres. It was Indian Prime Minister’s first speech since India was overwhelmingly elected as the member of powerful security council last month.

India, the endorsed candidate from the Asia-Pacific States, won 184 votes out of the 192 ballots cast in the elections for the five non-permanent seats of the Security Council.

The theme of this year’s High-Level Segment is ‘Multilateralism after COVID19: What kind of UN do we need at the 75th anniversary’. Against the backdrop of a changing international environment and the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic, the session will focus on critical forces shaping the course of multilateralism and explore ways to bolster the multilateral agenda through strong multilateral leadership, effective international institutions, a broadening of participation and an enhanced focus on global public goods”, the Permanent Mission of India to the UN said in a statement.

PM’s address to the UN as he told, ”Today, through our domestic efforts, we are again playing a salient role in achieving ‘Agenda 2030’ and the sustainable development goals. We are also supporting other developing countries in meeting their sustainable development goals.”. Prime Minister confirmed India’s prominent role in Agenda 2030. Now, What is Agenda 2030? What are the keynote points there in Agenda 2030?

Agenda 2030 in Brief 

 

The source of the image is United Nations.

The preamble defines this agenda as,” This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom.”
But as Glenn Miles defines this agenda inflames the implementation of New World Order. Glenn Miles says our government has committed to the United Nations’ Agenda 2030 of which the first goal was to “end poverty in all its forms everywhere” and asks “Where are the accountable, bold and comprehensive strategies that will get us there?” But is “there” really where we want to “get?”
Agenda 2030 is the blueprint for herding the “sheeple” in this last leg of the journey towards the “New World Order.” As he briefly defines in one of his articles in Lake Cowichan Gazette. After modiji addressed UN at ECOSOC, an image showcasing Agendas and New world order became viral on the internet. Though it was declared as the fake one yet the content it carried was familiar with what Glenn Miles indicated above.
The Agenda 2030 is indeed a transformational step by the United Nations and as according to the Prime Minister’s words India’s role will be a definable one in the upcoming years. How it’ll concisely play an instrumental role for the common man? And most importantly Is establishing One world government a part of UN’s plan? still remain as an important question to answer.
