Government Likely To Rename India As Bharat, Opposition Reacts On Twitter

During the special session of the Parliament from September 18- 22, the Narendra Modi led government is likely to propose a resolution to rename India as ‘Bharat’. 

This comes after G20 summit 2023 invites, from the President Draupadi Murmu’s office reads ‘ president of Bharat’ instead of ‘president of India’ came to light. This upcoming proposal has triggered the opposition leaders and they have taken to X to express their concerns. 

Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh expressed his views on X and wrote “Rashtrapati Bhawan has sent out an invite for a G20 dinner on Sept 9th in the name of ‘President of Bharat’ instead of the usual ‘President of India’.

He further adds, “Mr. Modi can continue to distort history and divide India, that is Bharat, that is a Union of States. But we will not be deterred. After all, what is the objective of INDIA parties? It is BHARAT—Bring Harmony, Amity, Reconciliation And Trust.


Jeetega INDIA!”

Assam’s Chief Minister expressed his contentment on X and wrote 

“REPUBLIC OF BHARAT – happy and proud that our civilisation is marching ahead boldly towards AMRIT KAAL”

Even the AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh alleged that RSS leader Mohan Bhagwat intends to change the Indian Constitution by replacing the word ‘India’ with ‘Bharat’. He said this because earlier Bhagwat urged the people to start saying ‘Bharat’ instead of ‘India’. 

He took to X and wrote as quoted by Mint, “Babasaheb Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar wrote in the constitution–“India That Is Bharat”. But Modi and RSS who hate Babasaheb want to change the constitution. Why do Bhagwat and Modi hate Babasaheb so much?”
