According to PTI, the Bharatiya Janata Party criticised the Congress on Monday, saying that former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru had “given away” China’s position on the permanent United Nations Security Council to that nation “on a platter”.
Asserting that “Today, while India, under the leadership of PM Modi, is shaping the world, and the world is supporting the country’s bid for a permanent UNSC seat, which Nehru gave away to China on a platter…,” the BJP attacked the Congress on X, formerly known as Twitter.The Gandhi family’s disloyal actions continue to plague our past.
Prime Minister Modi had stated on Sunday that in order to move the world towards a brighter future, it is essential that the global systems be in line with the current reality. He was making a fresh case for the extension of the UN Security Council and reforms in other international institutions.
The United Nations Security Council of today is another illustration of this. The world was very different from what it is today when the UN was founded. There were 51 founding members of the UN at that time. Around 200 nations are currently members of the UN, according to Modi.
“Despite this, the UNSC continues to have the same number of permanent members. Since then, the entire world has seen significant change. Every industry has undergone change, including those in transportation, communication, health, and education. Our new global structure needs to reflect these new realities, said PM Modi.
Today, Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who will preside over the G21 group in the coming year, expressed similar sentiments and asked for the UNSC to be reformed to take into account modern realities. The president of Brazil stated that his nation wants the subject of equality to be the “core issue” during its reign.
In addition to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan saying Turkiye would be “proud” if a country like India became a permanent member of the Security Council, US President Biden reiterated his support for a reformed UNSC with India as a permanent member.
