How far is India from UN Security Counci In the recent months, Prime Minister Modi has strongly articulated the need for India’s inclusion in the elite United Nation Security Council. It is inconceivable that world’s largest democracy, representing one-sixth of the humanity, is absent, in the Security Council, he reiterated.
