Prior to the second day of the G-7 Summit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Mahatma Gandhi bust at Hiroshima Peace Park on Saturday.
As a sign of friendship and goodwill between India and Japan, the government of India gave the Mahatma Gandhi bust to the city of Hiroshima.
Ram Vanji Sutar, a recipient of the Padma Bhushan award, was credited with creating the 42-inch-tall bronze figure, according to a statement from the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA).
“A sign of kindness and friendship. Mahatma Gandhi's bust was revealed by PM Narendra Modi in Hiroshima, according to a tweet from the External Affairs Ministry's official spokesperson, Arindam Bagchi.
The bust location is near to the famous Atomic-Bomb Dome, which is frequented by hundreds of residents and visitors each day. It is located next to the Motoyasu River.
“The site was chosen as a symbol of support for peace and non-violence. Mahatma Gandhi devoted his whole life to promoting nonviolence and peace. According to MEA, the area “really resonates with Gandhiji's ideas and way of life, which continue to inspire the globe and its leaders.
Nakatani Gen, Special Advisor to the Prime Minister and Member of Parliament, Kazumi Matsui, Mayor of Hiroshima City, and Tatsunori Motani, Speaker of the Hiroshima City Assembly, were among the dignitaries present at the unveiling event.
Senior government officials, Hiroshima-based members of parliament, Indian community members, and others attended the occasion.

On the first stage of a three-nation journey to Japan, Papua New Guinea, and Australia, the prime minister is in Hiroshima and is scheduled to participate in over 40 engagements.
