In the heart of Delhi’s bustling Khan Market, a thriving hub known for its upscale boutiques and eateries, preparations for the G20 Leaders’ Summit were in full swing. The local traders’ association had plans to welcome visiting delegates with mementos showcasing Indian craftsmanship and hospitality. However, those plans now lie on hold, as Khan Market, along with several other major markets in central Delhi, prepares to shutter its doors temporarily.
The reason? The G20 Leaders’ Summit, set to unfold in New Delhi from September 9 to 10.
The city is all decked up for the global event. Vibrant hoardings welcoming G20 delegates have sprouted across the landscape and security measures have been dialled up to their peak.
