India vs. Bharat Controversy: Government Denies Name Change Rumors
Recently, there has been talk about the government wanting to change the country’s name from India to ‘Bharat.’ But the government says this is just a rumor and not true.
A political argument started when a G20 dinner invitation used the title ‘President of Bharat’ instead of ‘President of India.’ This made some people think that the government might be planning to change the country’s name.
The opposition, known as INDIA, got upset and criticized the government for this. They believe the government is against the name ‘Bharat.’
In response, Union Minister Anurag Thakur said that these rumors only show what some people think about the name ‘Bharat.’ He thinks that if someone objects to using ‘Bharat,’ it shows their way of thinking.
Regarding the G20 dinner invitation using ‘President of Bharat,’ Anurag Thakur said it’s not a big issue. He mentioned that many government invitations have used ‘Bharat’ before, and it’s not a problem.
Anurag Thakur also asked why some people are against the name ‘Bharat’ and called them people who prioritize their political party over the country. He accused them of trying to harm the country’s reputation from abroad.
