External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today arrived in New Delhi after attending 71st session of United Nations General Assembly convened at New York, United States. Upon her arrival, the minister received a hero’s welcome as people chanted ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and ‘Behen Sushma Swaraj Zindabad’ slogans at the exit gate of Indira Gandhi International Airport. Sushma received applause from all corners of the country for her hard-hitting speech at UNGA, in which, the leader teared into Pakistan on various fronts. Sushma said that she has spoken everything needed at UNGA and need not to speak now. “Whatever I had to say, I have spoken there(UNGA), there’s no need to speak anything now,” Suhma said. Many leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi had heaped rich praise on Sushma Swaraj for her effective speech at 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) this evening.

PM Modi lauded Swaraj for her “fine articulation” of an array of global issues. In her speech, Sushma delivered a hard and clear message to Pakistan at the UNGA. The EAM also seemed to tell the US that it should stop supporting countries that harbour terrorists. “We have to be united in our fight against terrorism. We have to keep our likes and dislikes aside. We have to forget favours and leave old understandings. I don’t think that it is difficult, it is a matter of having the will to do it,” Swaraj said in what is seen as an obvious message to the US.
