‘Envision 2030 influenced by Deen Dayal’s integral humanism’
The sustainable development goals announced by United Nations in its Envision 2030 programme are heavily influenced by Deen Dayal Upadhyaya’s idea of integral humanism. However, it has not given him any credit, Atul Jain, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Research Institute general secretary, said in Belagavi on Thursday.
United Nations officials have copied and pasted these 17 development goals from one of the several books of Mr. Upadhyaya. These were announced recently in the presence of world leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi. But the United Nations has not given him any credit for this, Mr. Jain said. He was speaking at the inauguration of the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Study Chair at the Rani Chennamma University here.
