India vs Bharat:Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivered the inaugural address at the G-20 summit at Bharat Mandapam in New Delhi on Saturday. During this period, the African Union was also made a permanent member of G-20 under the chairmanship of India. Now this group will be called G-21 group. At the very moment when the Prime Minister was addressing the members and leaders of the guest countries, the entire nation’s attention was drawn to the nameplate placed on his table. The interesting thing in this was that on the name plate placed in front of the Prime Minister, ‘Bharat’ was written instead of India.

India vs India debate

This comes days after a huge controversy erupted over the replacement of India with the word India in President Draupadi Murmu’s dinner invitation to foreign leaders attending the G-20 summit this weekend. The debate began ahead of the upcoming special session of Parliament, the agenda of which has not yet been disclosed. According to media reports, the change in name can be discussed during the session and a bill can be passed regarding this. While members of the ruling BJP suggested that the name Bharat should take precedence over India, opposition leaders termed it a distraction, saying the name ‘Bharat’ is already mentioned in the Constitution.

Modi asks ministers to avoid political controversy on ‘India’

PM Modi on Wednesday had asked his cabinet colleagues to avoid political controversy on the ‘India’ issue. Considering that this has been the old name of the country. Changing the name of India to simply India would require an amendment to the Constitution which would have to be passed by a two-thirds majority in both houses of Parliament. However, now it remains to be seen whether the Modi government brings a bill to rename India as Bharat or not.
