‘Today I was deeply touched when..’

At the Padma awards ceremony, it is the President’s privilege to honour India’s best and most deserving. But today I was deeply touched when Saalumarada Thimmakka, an environmentalist from Karnataka, and at 107 the oldest Padma awardee this year, thought it fit to bless me.

Saalumarada Thimmakka represents the resilience and determination and perseverance of the ordinary Indian citizen, especially of women in our country. May her example, and that of every Padma awardee, inspire our India to greater heights, tweeted President Kovind

Listing of Masood Azhar under the United Nations Sanctions Committee: India has world wide support says EAM Sushma Swaraj

I wish to apprise you of the facts regarding listing of Masood Azhar under the United Nations Sanctions Committee. The proposal has been mooted four times.

In 2009, India under the UPA Government was the lone proposer.

In 2016, India’s proposal was co-sponsored by USA, France and UK.

In 2017, USA,UK and France moved the proposal.

In 2019, the proposal was moved by USA, France and UK and supported by 14 of the 15 UN Security Council Members and also co-sponsored by Australia, Bangladesh, Italy and Japan – non members of the Security Council.

Thus, we have secured an unprecedented support from the international community for listing of Masood Azhar under the UN Sanctions Committee.

I have shared these facts with you so that leaders who describe this as our diplomatic failure may see for themselves that in 2009, India was alone. In 2019, India has the world wide support.
