Today, ignoring BRICS is ignoring turn of history: Tharoor

New Delhi, Oct 3 (UNI) Former Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor today highlighted the importance of the BRICS civil forum in shaping the global agenda and the new world order and said
today ignoring BRICS is ignoring the turn of history.
Inaugurating the BRICS Civil Forum here, the Congress MP said BRICS was an alternative forum standing up to the dominant communities shaping the world policies.

He said BRICS countries with 3 trillion population represents about 40 per cent of World’s population and contributes 20 per cent to the world GDP and were emerging as dominant forces.

The Member of Parliament and Chairman, Parliamentary Standing Committee on External Affairs said, ''Issue of global justice and our exclusion from current world brings us together and we collectively demand legitimate position in the global order. The BRICS countries are making important contributions in economic growth as well as social justice, making us join the rule makers.

''The existing system should make room for us or collapse.''

Speaking about the role of civil society in BRICS, Dr Tharoor added that civil society has an important role of influencing the agenda of the summit by having a cohesive idea among them and conveying them to the government.

He added BRICS countries have already created the New Development Bank and there is further need to create knowledge hub among them as there was a need of globalised connected networked world.
He emphasised that BRICS countries have important role in creating future institutions.

''Civil society could help government in finding new innovative ways and in India, we have realised this. Civil society has an advantage over government as they have flexibility to exercise where government fails to reach,'' he said.
The Congress leader hoped that the deliberations of this important and timely event would feed into the agenda of the forthcoming BRICS summit.
