New Delhi, Oct 5 : Russian President Vladimir Putin here on Friday said all sorts of collaborations were possible among BRICS nations, and that cooperation in the field of art and in humanitarian affairs was being looked into.

“Be it in the field of finance or economic partnerships, BRICS brings meaningful content to various areas. Art and humanitarian cooperation are all possible.

“We are thinking about it… We will discuss with our colleagues and look at agendas in this direction,” Putin said, while interacting with young innovators from India and Russia.

He said interaction among the young people specially school students will contribute to strengthening the relations between India and Russia.

“We can together work in many interesting areas like artificial intelligence and also human intelligence.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Russian President jointly interacted with a group of 20 talented students — 10 Indian and 10 Russian — who are currently part of a collaborative innovation workshop in IIT-Delhi.

Putin appreciated the efforts made by scientists towards the development of the world, saying: “I really envy those who have devoted their lives to science. Science as an art is the most significant thing that one can do.”

“Humankind exists with developments in science and mathematics. We should understand it in a broader sense. It is also very important to research the origins of the universe.

“States like India and Russia that enjoy good scientific growth should work in this direction,” he said.

Modi said the innovation workshop, combining the students of Russia and India, was a great present to him by Putin.

“I share a very strong friendship with President Putin. The best gift from him for me is that he gave me a chance to meet all you talented kids.

“For the future of Russia, President Putin’s biggest contribution is that he utilised his intelligence and emotions in this direction (indulging with the young innovators),” he said.

Urging the youngsters to have a scientific temper, he said: “You have to have a scientific temper to show what can be be given to the world, to the poor and the future generations.”

“At every stage, we need to have a scientific temper… Without innovation, the world would have been stagnant,” Modi said.

Facing protests by farmers on the three agriculture-related Bills passed by Parliament, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday asserted that the NDA government had created history with regard to increase in MSPs of crops.

Addressing a party function held to commemorate Bharatiya Jana Sangh chief Deendayal Upadhyaya’s birth anniversary, he again defended the proposed legislations and said that small farmers would benefit the most.

“Small and marginal farmers, who constitute 86 per cent of those involved in agriculture, will benefit the most from agricultural reforms and the new laws,” Modi added.

The Prime Minister exhorted BJP workers to take the message of agriculture reforms and its benefits to the Indian farmers.

He also attacked the opposition parties, adding that only empty slogans were given by previous governments in the name of farmers till now.

AS for labour reforms, he said: “Only 30 per cent workers were so far covered under the minimum wages guarantee scheme, but now it will be extended to all workers in the unorganised sector. New laws will ensure timely salary to over 50 crore workers.”

The Prime Minister said that the welfare schemes initiated by his government drew inspiration from Upadhyaya, while praising BJP workers for serving people during the coronavirus lockdown.

Amid opposition protests, Parliament has passed The Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020, The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill, apart from three Bills related to labour.
