Addressing the “India Nuclear Energy Summit 2015” in Mumbai today, Dr. Jitendra Singh said, the last year-and-a-half has been eventful in more ways than one. On the one hand, it was during this period that a new government took over headed by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has a natural scientific temper and on the other hand, it was during the same period when the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) observed Diamond Jubilee of its establishment as a tribute to its founding father Homi J. Bhabha. It is also a vindication of Homi Bhabha’s mission that today India has become a frontrunner in the world in the field of nuclear energy and has also successfully proved its ability to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, he added.
