No matter how much criticism PM Modi’s recurring foreign trips might have received, the fact that they have been making India proud is quite evident now.
In the light of recently-conducted G20 Leaders Summit, Turkey has issued a special stamp in order to make the event memorable. The idea behind the release of the stamps is to ‘appreciate and honour’ the most powerful leaders of the greatest economies in the world. The special stamp issued, owing to the occasion G20 Summit, will see a personalised postage of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Not only this, but the 2.80 Turkish lira will also bear the India flag, along with the engravings of PM Modi’s image and official credentials. The written note for the stamp will say ‘Prime Minister of the Republic of India’, to be in credits at the bottom of the stamp.

Along with PM Modi, the US President Barack Obama, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau and UK PM David Cameron were the other leaders whose stamps were released during the event.
