India has made G-20 a more inclusive forum, he said addressing the 104th episode of Mann Ki Baat. Modi said the month of September is going to witness India's potential. 
"We are fully prepared for the G-20 Leaders Summit next month," he said.

Modi said heads of 40 countries and many global organisations would be arriving in the national capital to participate in this event. 

"This will be the biggest participation ever in the history of the G-20 Summit," he said.

The PM termed India’s presidency of the summit as the ‘people’s presidency’.

"The African Union also joined the G-20 on India’s invitation and the voice of the people of Africa reached this important platform of the world," Modi said.

He stated that India took over the presidency of the G-20 in Bali last year, and so much has happened that it fills every Indian with pride.

"About 200 meetings of G20 were organised in 60 cities across the country and delegates were very impressed by seeing the diversity of our country and our vibrant democracy," Modi said.

The Prime Minister said after the G-20 meeting in Srinagar, a huge increase in the number of tourists to Kashmir is being noticed.

He also urged all countrymen to come together to make the G-20 summit successful and bring glory to the country.

Talking about the world records that India made including the G20 quiz organised in Varanasi where 1.5 lakh students from 800 schools participated, Modi said India is making its presence felt in every field.
