Prime Minister Narendra Modi's crisp and positive address at the 74th speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Friday was hailed by Congress leader Jaiveer Shergill and the latter compared it to Yuvraj Singh's feat of six consecutive sixes. Comparing the speeches made by Pakistan PM Imran Khan and PM Modi in terms of content and substance, Jaiveer Shergill said that unlike Imran Khan's address, PM Modi's speech was like Yuvraj Singh hitting six balls for sixes outside the stadium. The Congress leader hailed PM Modi's speech and said that India as a nation stood grander and taller always. Earlier, senior Congress leader Dr. Abhishek Manu Singhvi, on Friday, tweeted that there was no comparison between PM Modi's speech and Pakistan PM Imran Khan's speech at UNGA. He stated that Khan's speech was petty, narrow, threatening and scared. In comparison, he stated that PM Modi did not mention Pakistan and spoke of India's achievements, culture, and potential. He declared India and PM Modi won hands down.

Imran Khan's UNGA address

Addressing the 74th United Nations General Assembly at the UN Headquarters, New York, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, on Friday, predicted 'another Pulwama' when restrictions in Kashmir are completely lifted. He admitted to Pakistan's backing for Mujahideen and the country's flimsy economy. He blamed India for its current standing at the FATF. He also made an absurd Hollywood reference to defend terrorism, stating the possibility of a terror attack in Kashmir. Curiously, he repeatedly brought up his former cricket career and rambled on for 50 minutes at the UNGA.

Contrasting PM Imran Khan's 50-minute long speech, India's PM Modi wrapped up his entire speech within the allotted 15 minutes. PM Modi used the global stage to reaffirm India's commitment to fight against terror, climate change. He also showcased India as a global leader in terms of cleanliness, renewable energy, and development. PM Modi also spoke about India's rich heritage and culture, pride in the world celebrating 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi and the message behind being elected with the world's biggest mandate.
