The Prime Minister tweeted, “May the ideas and principles of Gandhi increase prosperity on Earth and promote sustainable development.
Gandhi’s bust will serve as a reminder of the principles he supported, said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres earlier on Thursday in a tweet, calling Gandhi an “uncompromising advocate for peaceful coexistence.” “Mahatma Gandhi was a staunch supporter of non-discrimination, pluralism, and peaceful coexistence. According to Guterres’ tweet, the new installation at UN headquarters will serve as a reminder of the principles Gandhi upheld and to which we must continue to be dedicated. At the installation of Mahatma Gandhi’s bust, Jaishankar was joined by Guterres, Csaba Korosi, the 77th UN General Assembly’s president, and Ruchira Kamboj, India’s Permanent Representative/Ambassador to the UN.
