New Delhi [India], September 16 (ANI): Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the national capital on Saturday.

Saha congratulated PM Modi for the successful two-day G20 Summit, which was attended by world leaders from across the globe.

Taking to the social media platform X, the Tripura Chief Minister said, "Extremely honoured to have met Pradhan Sevak of Bharat Adaraniya Shri Narendra Modi Ji in New Delhi today. Congratulated the Hon'ble PM for successfully holding the G20 Presidency and also received his guidance for the overall development of Tripura. His encouragement has always been the guiding light for me, in delivering good governance up to the last mile in society." The G20 Summit, under India's Presidency, concluded on September 10. Over 40 global leaders and their delegations attended the mega event.

At the Leader's Summit, the New Delhi Declaration was adopted unanimously with full consensus. A major standout of the declaration was bringing all global powers on the same page and forging consensus on an issue as divisive as the Russia-Ukraine war.

At the conclusion of the summit, PM Modi handed over the gavel to Brazilian President Lula da Silva and also proposed to hold a virtual G20 session in November to review the suggestions and proposals made at the premier forum for international economic cooperation.

Throughout India's presidency, raising the voice of Global South and the developing nations was at the forefront of New Delhi's agenda. India's theme for the G20 Presidency was also 'One Earth One Family One Future', whose Sanskrit translation goes as 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam'.

PM Modi stated that India's G20 Presidency has become a symbol of inclusion both inside and outside the country, adding that it has become"People's G20" in India and crores of citizens are connected with it.

A major and historic takeaway of India's presidency of the G20 Summit has been the inclusion of the African Union as a permanent member of the Group of 20 (G20). (ANI)
