PM Modi while addressing the United Nations General Assembly said that our diversity is the hallmark of our strong democracy. A country in which there are dozens of languages, hundreds of dialects, different lifestyles and food habits. This is an example of Vibrant Democracy. I am representing a country which has the pride of Mother of Democracy. It is the strength of India's democracy that a small child who once helped his father at the tea stall of a railway station is addressing the UNGA for the fourth time today as the Prime Minister of India. In the last 7 years 43 crore people got the benefit of banking service. Drone mapping of 6 lakh villages is being done for the first time in India. If India moves forward, the world moves forward.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that we have a great tradition of thousands of years of democracy. On this 15th August, India entered its 75th year of independence.
