According to a tentative schedule of UNGA, India’s Head of Government (HG) will give a speech in the morning session on September 26.According to the list cited by PTI, Modi is expected to address the General Debate on the morning of September 26. However, it must be noted that the list is provisional and two more iterations will take place as schedules and speakers for the General Debate can change in the course of the next few weeks. The final speaking order for the General Debate could be different.
