The official name of India may be changed to “Bharat,” according to sources 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 prospective name will likely be discussed during a Special Session of Parliament. The name change appears to have been made to distinguish the nation from the Indian political coalition.

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

The Modi administration was criticised by Congress politician Jairam Ramesh, who called this action an assault on the Indian Constitution.

“Modi can keep dividing India, which is Bharat, a Union of States, and distorting history. But we’re not going to back down. After all, what do Indian parties hope to achieve? BHARAT stands for “Bring Harmony, Amity, Reconciliation, and Trust.” “Judega BHARAT, Jeetega INDIA!” On X, he stated.
