Top 5 quotes of PM Modi at UN General Assembly:

# We believe that terrorism is not a challenge for anyone country, but for all countries and of mankind as a whole. So for the sake of humanity, all the world has to unite against terror.

# India is a nation that has given Buddh (in a reference to Gautam Buddha) and not Yuddh (war). That is why we have anger and a commitment against terrorism.

# When a developing country runs world’s biggest Financial Inclusion programme, opens 37 crore bank accounts for the poor people just in five years, then the systems created due to it, give faith to poor people across the world.

# When a developing country is able to successfully implement the world’s biggest sanitation campaign within the ‘Clean India Mission’, building over 110 million toilets in just five years for its countrymen, all its achievements and outcomes are an inspirational message for the entire world.

# By 2022, when India marks 75 years of Independence, we will have constructed two crore homes for the poor. The world has set 2030 as its target for the eradication of tuberculosis, but we are trying to achieve that by 2025.
