PM Modi retains ‘world’s most popular global leader' position: Report
India successfully hosted the G20 summit in Delhi, adopting the New Delhi Declaration and proposing a virtual session in November. PM Modi remains the world's most popular leader with a 76% approval rating.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi retained his top position as the world's most popular leader with an approval rating of 76 percent, according to a survey by US-based consultancy firm ‘Morning Consult’. In previous ratings too, PM Modi had topped the ranking.
Recently, India successfully hosted the G20 summit in Delhi where more than 40 global leaders and their delegations had come. At the G20 Leaders' Summit, the New Delhi Declaration was adopted unanimously with full consensus.
While concluding the G20 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).
