India aspiring for permanent seat in UN's security council ?

The UN security council has 5 permanent members. These permanent members are the USA, England, France, Russia and China. We call them P5. India is aspiring to become one of the members of the UN’s security council.

The question is why India wants a position in the security council. It appears that we want the honor for two reasons. The first is, after India rescinded from its promise to conduct a plebiscite in Kashmir, we tried for decades to ensure that the UN resolutions on a plebiscite in Kashmir died or became dormant. Many Indians might not know of the existence of the UN Military Observer Group and its presence in India to oversee our dispute with Pakistan. In 2014, the Modi government ordered it to vacate its office on Purana Qila Road in Delhi, without knowing that this was not possible. The office still exists of course. India has always felt international pressure over its action in Kashmir and has sought to head it off through securing a veto. This is the primary reason, a defensive one .

The other reason we want to be on the P5 is our entitlement based on the size of our population and the fantasy that we are a civilisational entity of higher quality than others.

To conclude, the fact is that, what we would do with veto power if we were suddenly handed that power.
