With Prime Minister Narendra Modi jumping the allotted time by 13 minutes for his address to the UN Sustainable Development Summit here, a UN official presiding over the session remarked that every extra 60 seconds used by him represented every 100 million people.

“I thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Representing 1.2 billion people he had to exceed the time by 13 minutes, that means one minute for every 100 million people,” the UN official presiding over session in the UN General Assembly hall said to laughter and applause after the Indian leader finished his address to the 193-member UN body yesterday.

Modi’s address focused a call for climate justice, with the Prime Minister stressing that the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities is the bedrock of the world’s collective enterprise.
