Swaraj said the demand for declaring Masood Azhar as a global terrorist was going on since 2009. But due to the diplomatic acumen of the prime minister, Azhar was declared a global terrorist on May 1.

Referring to the plans and achievements of the central government, the minister said many remarkable works were done in the last five years. She said Modi gave equal status to Muslim women by bringing a law against triple talaq.
