Sharad Pawar targets government on use of silverware for G20 Summit

by The Technical Blogs


Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar on Sunday disapproved of world leaders at the G20 Summit being served meals on bespoke silverware and gold-plated utensils.

“Such events were held in India twice earlier, once when Indira Gandhi was the prime minister, and world leaders had come to participate. But I never heard of silverware and gold-plated utensils being used (for the delegates),” Pawar said.

Talking to reporters after a meeting of his party in south Mumbai, Pawar said, “I agree that the world leaders who come to India need to be shown respect as it is important for the country, but it is wrong to misuse such events to sideline important issues and boost the stature of some people.”

“People in the country will discuss and form views on whether it is right to use such events to build one’s image,” the 82-year-old leader said.
