Will India soon be called “Bharat”?

The official name of India may be changed to “Bharat,” according to reports in Indian media. This shift was made clear when Droupadi Murmu, the president of India, addressed herself as “President of Bharat” rather than the traditional “President of the Republic of India” in an official dinner invitation to G20 leaders.

This potential renaming will likely be discussed during a Special Session of Parliament. The name change appears to have been made in order to distinguish the nation from the INDIA political alliance.

Assam’s Chief Minister, Himanta Biswa Sarma, praised the potential change on X (formerly Twitter), calling it a proud step forward in the development of the country’s civilization.

Jairam Ramesh, a leader in the Congress, criticized the Modi administration and called this action an assault on the Indian Constitution.

Modi is free to keep distorting history and dividing Bharat, which is a Union of States known as India. But we won’t let that stop us. After all, what do Indian political parties hope to accomplish? Bring Harmony, Amity, Reconciliation, and Trust is what BHARAT stands for. “Judega BHARAT, Jeetega INDIA!” On, he said.

Harnath Singh Yadav, a member of the BJP, told an Indian news agency that he preferred the name “Bharat” over “India,” explaining that “India” was given during British rule while “Bharat” is more closely linked to Indian culture and history.
