After the G20 summit success, the Modi regime mulls hosting another big summit...What you must know?

Elated with the successful hosting of the G20 summit, the centre-ruling BJP regime, which is on a cloud nine over the significant surge of Prime Minister Modi's image as a global leader, is mulling hosting yet another big summit, which would possibly escalate the country's tussle with China. Yes, after the G20 summit, the Modi government is strongly planning to host the Quad summit in India. 

The G20 summit was held in Delhi on September 9 & 10 during which the forum adopted Delhi Declaration with the backing of the summit members including China and Russia, though the leaders of these two countries had skipped attending the forum. The adoptation of Delhi Declaration has been regarded as one of the big achievements for India as the president of G20 summit for 2023. Also an achievement was India's efforts to induct the African Union as a permanent member of the G20. 

Now, within a week after the G20 summit was wrapped up, the Modi government is planning to host the Quad summit. Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (QUAD) is a security dialogue forum that consists four countries as its members and all four of them are China's foes. The four member countries of Quad are India, Japan, Australia, and the United States and a primary objective of this grouping is to curb the growing influence of Xi Jinping's China and to counter the challenges posed by it.

Besides dialogues, these Quad countries would also engage in joint military exercises against the Chinese aggression. At a time when China is disrupting the territorial integrity of its neighbouring countries including India, Taiwan, and Philippines, the attention towards the Quad summit is rapidly surging across the globe, so is the scale of adversary with China. It is believed that the Quad countries are building up their military infrastructure to counter China's territorial aspirations in the Indo-Pacific region. 

According to Deccan Herald, India is beefing up its plan to host the Quad summit in 2024. Though the date and schedule are yet to be finalized, the Modi government is planning to host the summit in early 2024. It would be no surprise if the leaders of the Quad countries would take part in India's Republic Day celebrations on January 26, 2024. 

When Prime Minister Narendra Modi participated in the Quad summit 2023 earlier this May in Hiroshima, Japan, he had invited the Quad leaders to India for the next Quad summit in 2024 and the leaders of three countries - Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, US President Joe Biden, and Australian Prime Minister Antony Albanese had accepted Modi's invitation to host the next Quad summit in India.
