News18 Rising Bharat Summit 2024 Day 1 LIVE Updates: The fourth edition of the CNN-News18 marquee leadership conclave — Rising Bharat Summit 2024 — is being held in New Delhi on March 19-20. The Summit will witness Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivering his keynote address to our viewers. Several prominent names from the field of politics, arts, corporate world, entertainment and sports will also participate in the event.
Speaking at the Summit, BJD leader VK Pandian clarified that though he entered into politics, but he had no plans to enter into electoral politics. He further stated that he is going to help Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik to secure majority in the coming Assembly polls in the state.
Meanwhile, Union Minister Smriti Irani — at the Summit — slammed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over his ‘Shakti’ remark and said that “Anybody who has challenged Shakti has always been taught a lesson”. She also slammed the grand old party’s rule in Amethi and said that they will not be able to win that constituency again.
“I assure you,” she said, adding that “The NDA will cross 400 mark” in the upcoming general elections.
The Summit provides a platform to explore and celebrate India’s remarkable transformative journey over the years, while also acknowledging the immense potential that lies ahead.
Day 1 of the two-day Rising Bharat Summit 2024 witnessed the presence of Union Ministers Nitin Gadkari, Ashwini Vaishnaw and Smriti Irani. Ashish Sompura, the Architect of the grand Ram Temple in Ayodhya and Historian & Ram Lalla Idol Jewellery Designer Yatinder Mishra will also deliver their views on spirituality.
The second day of the Summit will see EAM S Jaishankar talking about India’s moment and its growth in the coming years. Popular faces in the world of cricket like AB de Villiers, Brett Lee, Aakash Chopra and Anjum Chopra will also participate in the grand event. The Summit will be concluded by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s key address on ‘Rising Bharat: Leading for Global Good’.
American political scientist John J. Mearsheimer on Tuesday described India as an “aspiring great power” that is growing strength to strength in the geopolitical rivalry involving the United States, China, and Russia. Speaking during a session at CNN News18’s Rising Bharat Summit 2024 in New Delhi, Mearsheimer said that the United States was the most powerful country on the planet during the unipolar phase, which started with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 and lasted roughly till the mid-2010s.
Arguing from a realist perspective, he said the world today was a multipolar one where great powers are vying for dominance. “By 2017, Vladimir Putin had rescued Russia from the dead and Russia was back as the great power — and China (too) because of all of the economic growth that had taken place, during the 1990s and the first 17 years of the 21st century,” said Mearsheimer.

For Union Minister Smriti Irani, ‘shakti’ means ‘Durga and desh’, while ‘Modi’ means ‘shakti ke upasak’. The BJP leader and Amethi MP sportingly took part in a rapid fire round of word association towards the end of a session at the CNN-News18 Rising Bharat Summit on Tuesday.
For the word ‘Rahul’ she responded with ‘maryada-heen’, while for ‘370’ she replied with ‘400 paar’, a reference to the BJP’s target of 400-plus seats in the Lok Sabha elections this time. Asked what words or phrases she would associate with ‘Smriti’, the minister promptly responded with ‘maa’.

CNN News18 kicked off the Rising Bharat Summit 2024 on Tuesday, March 19, and one of our first guests was Union Minister Nitin Gadkari. The political leader, who is currently the Minister for Road Transport & Highways in the Government of India, spoke about the development in India, the upcoming elections and more. However, he surprised everyone by talking about Amitabh Bachchan.
During the chat with the host, Amish Devgan, Gadkari was shown a series of photos of Bollywood stars. These included Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Vikrant Massey, Alia Bhatt, Kiara Advani and Taapsee Pannu. The host asked him to pick his favourite star from the actors and actresses. Although he said he liked the work of everyone shown, Amitabh Bachchan would always be his favourite actor.
India is the world’s only post-colonial, highly traditional country that has cracked the code on how to run a liberal democracy, Salvatore Babones, American sociologist and Associate Professor at the University of Sydney, said on Tuesday at CNN-News18’s Rising Bharat Summit.
“India has a democracy, a liberal democracy, a robust liberal democracy… India’s critics love to say that India is not a liberal democracy. India’s democratic institutions are modelled after institutions in North America, Western Europe and Australasia. India’s institutions would not be out of place in any of those regions of the world. India is, in effect, the world’s only post-colonial, highly traditional country that has cracked the code about how to run a liberal democracy,” Babones said.
Former Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Erik Solheim, on Tuesday, drew attention to the pressing need for equitable solutions to climate change, emphasising that India and other countries in the Global South have far lower per capita emissions than those in the Global North.
Speaking during a panel discussion at the Rising Bharat Summit here, Solheim said no one should blame India or the Global South for climate change. “The emissions of the United States of America up to this point are 25 times Indian emissions per capita. So stop blaming the global south. By the way, American emissions are also eight times Chinese emissions per capita,” Solheim said while responding to a question on the global divide over climate policies.

“I assure you,” Union Minister Smriti Irani said, adding that, “NDA is crossing 400, just as PM Modi said.”
Union Minister Smriti Irani said that the Gandhi family has only looted the nation. She said that she is glad to have been the one to “defeat” the family in Amethi.
“When Rahul Gandhi brought his Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra to Amethi, nobody attended it, not even the karyakartas,” she said while speaking at the Rising Bharat Summit.
