United Nations: Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday dismissed Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s accusations against India at UNGA, kicks back with bombastic words and said, “Look who is talking”. Sushma Swaraj throws a superb message to the neighbors who are only engaged in fighting.  Swaraj underlined the contrasts between an India that had made IITs, IIMs and the AIIMs, and a Pakistan that had made the Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Hizbul Mujahideen and the Haqqani network.

Sushma Swaraj’s Speech At UNGA:

India welcomes your efforts to place people at the heart of international diplomacy as you shape policy and lend direction to world affairs from your august chair. I thank you for the theme you have chosen: ‘focusing on people: Striving for peace and a decent life on a sustainable planet’. People, peace, decency, sustenance and focus define a noble objective.

All our economic programmes have a principal purpose, die empowerment of the poor; Jan Dhan, Mudra, Ujjwala, Skill India, Digital India, Clean India, Start-Up India, Stand-Up India. To describe them all would take up moretime than 1 have at my disposal,  and I shall therefore dwell on only three core programmes

We are completely engaged in fighting poverty; alas, our neighbour Pakistan seems only engaged in fighting us. On Thursday, from this dais, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shahid Khakan Abbasi wasted rather too much of his speech in making accusations against us. He accused India of State- sponsored terrorism, and of violating human rights. Those listening had only one observation: “Look who’s talking!” A country that has been the world’s greatest exporter of havoc, death and inhumanity became a champion of hypocrisy by preaching about humanity from this podium. We made IITs, IIMs; Pakistan made LeT and Hizbul Mujahideen: Swaraj

Complete eradication of poverty is the priority of the present government: May all be happy, healthy and see what is good and be free from suffering: Swaraj ends speech and said India believes in peace not in War.
