” he said. both strategic and national security objectives, ?? ??? The wealth that increases by giving That wealth is knowledge and is supreme of all possessions We have launched the most ambitious programme to provide skills to our youth; and education for every child in the remotest villages Our progress will remain a mirage unless women no longer suffer from daily fear or barriers to opportunity; and when they are no longer victims of exclusion and prejudice And this change must begin with the girl child So the programme to educate and support the girl child in India is one that is closest to my heart We will ensure that they can go to school; and also that they can attend it in safety and dignity Today the digital age has created opportunities beyond imagination; but digital divide can expand disparities On the other hand digital connectivity and smart phones have create a revolution of possibilities to educate deliver services and extend development This is the most exciting change in our era Our Digital India will create a participative transparent and a responsive government connected to the citizens And we have launched a digital literacy mission to connect each of our 600000 villages The link between habitat and fulfillment of human potential is deep and strong So the highest priority for my Government is to provide a roof over every head; power in every house; sanitation and clean water within everyone’s reach; a hope for every child to survive; and a chance for every new mother to love her child It also means clean rivers air that we can breathe and forests filled with the sound of birds To achieve these goals we need not just policies and resources but even more the power of science For us science is driven by the larger purpose of human development; and for a safe sustainable prosperous future for India Science also unites people across borders in a shared purpose And when we share its fruits with those who don’t have it we connect lives and make our world a better place India never forgets the help we have received in our early years; today we are fulfilling our responsibility to others Therefore science is a key priority of India’s international engagement Culture is a sublime expression of a people; and the foundations of a society UNESCO’s initiatives to preserve the world’s cultural heritage including in India are inspiring We see India’s rich and diverse cultural heritage as humanity’s wealth And we will do everything to preserve it for future generations We have launched ‘Heritage Development and Augmentation Yojana – HRIDAY or heart in Hindi – to preserve the cultural heritage of our cities We have started a special scheme called “PRASAD” – or offerings) – Pilgrimage Rejuvenation and Spirituality Augmentation Drive” for rejuvenation of our pilgrim centres” Madam Chairman I speak of our vision and initiatives because in our own aspirations and efforts we see the value of UNESCO to our world with great clarity In the challenges of our times we see its purpose with a sense of urgency The fault lines in our world are shifting from the boundaries of nations into the web of our societies and the streets of our cities The threats are changing from domination by states to destruction by groups We fight today not only over what we claim but also for who we are And in many parts of the world culture remains a source of conflict We have access to communication at the click of a mouse We live in a world of information Yet we know that familiarity does not always lead to fraternity; or reduce prejudice When Ebola threatens an entire region; the fury of unseasonal storms destroys crops and lives; and diseases still defeat our most courageous fight we understand how fragile we are When we see people living at the edge of existence; children shut out of classrooms; and nations without the human resources to shoulder the responsibility of progress we know that we still have a long way to go To be sure our world has made incredible progress over seven decades So our progress should inspire us to meet our challenges UNESCO can play a vital role in addressing them Culture must connect not divide our world It should be a bridge to greater respect and understanding between people It should join nations in peace and harmony Across India’s neighbourhood Asia and Indian Ocean we are retracing our cultural connections to form a closer bond of friendship in this dynamic region We must turn deep into our cultures; traditions; and religions; to overcome the rising tide of extremism violence and divisions across the world We must intensify exchanges between the youth of the world to sow the seeds of a more peaceful world Cultures also hold great wealth of traditional knowledge Societies across the world have evolved them through wisdom gathered over the ages And they hold the secrets to economic efficient and environment friendly solutions to many of our problems But today they are at risk of extinction in our globalised world So we must here make more efforts to revive preserve and nurture traditional knowledge This will also redefine a fundamental truth about human civilization: as our cultures are diverse knowledge has many sources In doing so we will give ourselves a greater chance to meet our challenges We must do more to harness science for human welfare in some of the most vulnerable parts of the world – especially for health and food security Climate change is a pressing global challenge And it calls for a collective human action; and a comprehensive response We must draw upon our entire wealth of wisdom; the strength of every institution; all possibilities of innovation; and the power of science In India faith and Nature have had a deep link since ancient times For us the only path to prosperity is the sustainable one We make this choice with the natural instincts of our culture and tradition But we also do this with a commitment to our future We have for example set a target of adding 175000 MW of clean and renewable energy in the next seven years Too often our discussion is reduced to an argument about emission cuts But we are more likely to succeed if we offer affordable solutions not simply impose choices That is why I have called for global public action to develop clean energy that is affordable and accessible to all And it is for the same reason that I call for a change in lifestyle Because the emission reduction that we seek will be the natural outcome of how we live And it will also mean a different path to economic well being It is with this vision that I had called the United Nations General Assembly last September to declare June 21st as the International Day of Yoga Yoga awakens a sense of oneness and harmony with self society and Nature By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness it can help us deal with climate change and create a more balanced world Last December the UNGA adopted it with a record co-sponsorship in a record time It was not just an act of friendship for India It reflected our collective ability to go beyond our familiar boundaries in search for solutions to common challenges The campaign to clean our Ganges River is a mission that connects culture science traditional knowledge education economy and environment; but it is also about attitudes and lifestyles Madam Chairperson Outside this hall I paid respect at the statue of a great Indian philosopher and sage Shri Aurobindo There is much that we can learn from his humanism and spiritualism from his belief in the unity of individual consciousness with the world outside; the enlightened purpose of education; the service of science; and the unity of world founded on national freedom diversity of civilizations and autonomy of culture It is a guiding spirit for the purpose of this institution – the defence of peace in the mind of men The 70th anniversary is a moment to celebrate our remarkable journey so far It is also a time to look ahead with wisdom that has come with time and experience Whatever we wish to achieve as United Nations UNESCO will always have a part to play – whether it is sustainable development our post-2015 agenda climate change or peace and security UNESCO’s responsibilities to our future have become bigger; and so our resolve must be stronger Thank you very much for this opportunity Thank you

tabled in the Parliament showed that corruption complaints from Delhi had dropped by 81 per cent “This is a significant change in itself This shows that the people of Delhi are satisfied with the government and its honesty This is an achievement of the AAP government” Sisodia said “Our party had come (to power) on the anti-corruption plank There is zero tolerance against corruption The CVC report reflects that” Sisodia said that in the last fiscal the CVC had received 969 complaints from Delhi compared to 5139 complaints in 2015 “If corruption is eliminated at the top level it percolates to the bottom There are some problems in field offices but surprise inspections have instilled fear and that too reduces corruption I am happy that the people of Delhi have had fewer opportunities to complain against corruption This is a feather in the government’s cap” said Sisodia Addressing a press conference on Friday the Deputy CM said this angle of the CVC annual report tabled in the Parliament was not reported by the media and hence he was drawing their attention to it “At the Centre there is a 67 per cent rise (in corruption complaints) and in the AAP government there is an 81 per cent drop There are many reasons behind this One is that we have shown zero tolerance towards any minister found engaging in corruption and ways of governance like e-districts”
