Public’s Reaction

Jairam Ramesh has said,

“So the news is indeed true. Rashtrapati Bhawan has sent an invite for a G20 dinner on September 9 in the name of the ‘President of Bharat’ instead of the usual ‘President of India.’ Article 1 in the Constitution can read: “Bharat, that was India, shall be a Union of States.”

Using “Bharat” instead of “India” in the G20 dinner invite may have been a mistake or a deliberate attempt to promote Indian culture. However, it is unlikely that India will change its name to “Republic of Bharat” anytime soon. Changing the name of a country requires a constitutional amendment, which is a lengthy and complicated process. Former cricketer Virender Sehwag shared a video of Sadguru and even tagged Jay Shah and insisted that for the World Cup, our Team should play with the name Bharat.
