A day after India assumed the leadership of the G-20, the Congress on Friday attacked the Modi government, saying the presidency was rotational and inevitable with none of the countries that held the responsibility earlier staging a "high voltage drama" as is being done now.

India on Thursday assumed the Presidency of the G-20 with Prime Minister Narendra Modi making a strong pitch for "fundamental mindset shift" to benefit humanity as a whole and saying the country will work to further promote "oneness".

Several centrally-protected monuments including UNESCO world heritage sites spread across the country were lit up with the G-20 logo to mark the start of India's year-long Presidency of the grouping.

Attacking the government, Congress' general secretary in-charge communications Jairam Ramesh said the presidency of the G20 is rotational and India's Presidency was inevitable.
