The Prime Minister of India paid floral tributes at the memorial museum built to commemorate the victims of the US atomic bombing of this Japanese city at the end of World War II in 1945. He was accompanied by Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and Japan’s Fumio Kishida among other world leaders.
On this day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in response to the journalist’s question, “In my opinion, the development model should be a source of learning for other countries. The development model cannot be a thorn in the path of developing countries. Let the natural farming system be started as an alternative to fertilizers. Let this natural farming system spread all over the world. I feel that farmers all over the world should take help of digital technology right now. Organic food should be removed from fashion statement and commercialization. It has to do with hygiene.”
