Key takeaways from the interview include:

1.A Platform for Empowerment: PM Modi’s extensive travels across India have given him insight into the diverse cultures and challenges of the country. He emphasized that people from all regions and sections of society possess a ‘can do’ spirit and just needed a platform that empowered them. This insight led to the decision to host G20 events across 60 cities in all 28 states and eight union territories.

2.Breaking from Tradition: Historically, major meetings were confined to Delhi. Modi highlighted that this dependence on Delhi was either due to convenience or a lack of confidence in the people. His government actively worked to change this approach by hosting global leaders in cities other than Delhi, demonstrating a commitment to cooperative federalism.

3.Scale and Impact: India’s G20 Presidency involved over 220 meetings with more than one lakh participants from approximately 125 nationalities. Over 1.5 crore individuals in India were involved in these programs or exposed to various aspects of them. Hosting events of this scale required significant capacity building in terms of infrastructure, logistics, and communication skills.

4.People’s Participation: The underlying theme of the ‘People’s Presidency’ is Jan Bhagidari, or people’s participation. Modi believes that this is the most crucial factor in the success of any initiative. Global leaders meeting him are filled with optimism about India and are convinced that India must play a larger role in shaping the global future.

Overall, PM Modi’s vision for India’s G20 Presidency revolves around inclusivity, empowerment, and people’s participation on a national and global scale.
