Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday addressed the Indian community at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France where he talked over a number of issues including the mandate of 2019 Lok Sabha polls, climate change and building a ‘New India’ that focuses on ease of doing business while ensuring ease of living. He also said that India will achieve most of the climate change goals set for 2030, in the next year and a half.
The PM also talked over the friendship between the two countries. “The relationship between India and France is hundreds-years old. Our friendship is not based on selfishness, but on solid ideals of ‘Liberty, Equality and Fraternity’,” he said. Talking about the BJP’s massive mandate in the recent Lok Sabha elections, the Prime Minister said, “I want to tell you that India is now surging ahead, the mandate we got is not merely for running a govt but for building a new India.”
He also said, “In new India, the way in which action is being taken against corruption, dynasty politics, loot of people’s money, terrorism, this has never happened before. Within 75 days of the new govt coming to power, we took many strong decisions.”
