Congress chief Shashi Tharoor on Sunday hailed the New Delhi Declaration of the G20 members, saying it “undoubtedly” represents “a diplomatic triumph for India”.

In an unique interview with ANI, Mr Tharoor mentioned, “The Delhi Declaration is undoubtedly a diplomatic triumph for India. It is a good achievement as a result of proper till the G20 summit was being convened, the widespread expectation was there could be no settlement and, that, due to this fact, a joint communique may not be potential, and, that we’d have to finish up with a boss’s abstract.”

On Saturday, on the opening day of the G20 summit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi mentioned a consensus had been constructed on the New Delhi G20 Leaders’ Summit Declaration earlier than formally saying its adoption.

India was capable of finding a method to bridge that hole and that could be a important diplomatic achievement as a result of when there’s a Summit with no joint communique, it’s at all times seen as a setback for the chairman,” Mr Tharoor added.

On the conduct of the G20 summit below India’s presidency, Tharoor mentioned the federal government really made it a ‘individuals’s G20’, including that it was additionally an try by the “ruling celebration” (BJP) to show the mega huddle of world leaders into an “asset” for themselves.

They really made it a nationwide occasion, 200 conferences in 58 cities with enormous quantity of motion, they transformed the G20 right into a form of individuals G20. With public occasions, the college join programmes, civil societies, all this stuff had been achieved below our presidency. That’s in some methods each a credit score to India for taking a message of G20 to the complete individuals. But it surely was additionally an try by the ruling celebration to instrumentalize the G20 as one thing that might turn into an asset for them,” Mr Tharoor mentioned.

Prime Minister Modi, whereas saying the conclusion of the G20 summit on Sunday, proposed to carry a digital G20 session in November to evaluation the recommendations and proposals made on the premier discussion board for worldwide financial cooperation.

On that, Mr Tharoor mentioned, “They’ve each proper to do this, they’re the ruling celebration. Many nations have hosted the G20 occasion, however by no means a ruling celebration has celebrated its management in such a manner, the entire Vishwaguru idea, the posters of Mr Modi each 50 meters in Delhi. All of those are promoting the G20 as if it was the non-public achievement of Mr Modi and the BJP authorities and that I believe has raised some eyebrows.”

Earlier than declaring that the summit closed, PM Modi handed over the ceremonial gavel of the Group of 20 presidency to Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
