External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today addressed the United Nations General Assembly today at 21:00 IST. In her speech she was very clear in firing wordshots at Pakistan. This was the longest part of her speech and was what everyone was strongly expecting from her after Pakistan alleged India for violating human rights on that very particular place. Another important point she mentioned was that of poverty in india. There were other issues that she addressed.
