The minister of external affairs, S. Jaishankar, reaffirmed India’s rising prominence in the world and mentioned the BRICS summit, which was presided over by South Africa last year. He related the story of how the president of that country invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi to join him at the meeting, citing India as an example for other developing nations.

“There was a large conference going on there, with between forty and forty-five presidents and prime ministers. Since most of them were from developing nations, they all thought that India had made progress in some way. The President of South Africa, who was our host, said Modi Ji, “Come, sit with me. At least if I touch you, then.”

India is become a role model for many other nations. India is a democracy that not only works well but also serves as an example for other democracies throughout the globe. The world now expects greater things of those who are capable, and their obligations also increase,” he continued.

EAM Jaishankar also talked about his trip to Tanzania, where he was greeted with great enthusiasm by the populace and informed that many had come because they were aware that India was their source of tap water.

“I travelled to Tanzania last year and travelled between cities, stopping at communities along the way. I observed that it appeared to be a political gathering because so many people were present, similar to what happens here.

“We were able to bring this water technology to Tanzania and there to the people of Tanzania because Indian companies have strengthened themselves in water technology because of the Jaljeevan Mission.” Tanzanians believe that India is the reason we have water, he continued.

By 2024, all rural families in Tanzania are expected to have access to tap water thanks to the Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM) programme of India. According to the official website of the Indian embassy in Tanzania, the programme would also incorporate source sustainability measures including water conservation, rainwater harvesting, and grey water management.

The goal is to address water issues locally, with a focus on communication, education, and a wealth of information.

Two million people in Dar es Salaam have access to drinkable water thanks to the program’s operational first phase. 13 crore rural homes now have tap water connections thanks to the programme, marking a significant accomplishment.

The Jal Shakti Ministry, the nodal ministry for scheme execution, includes the JJM. Since 2012, the Indian government has granted lines of credit to Tanzania for water projects totaling USD 1038.65 million.
