In a significant development, the Narendra Modi-led government is poised to introduce a pivotal resolution aimed at altering India’s official nomenclature to ‘Bharat’ during the forthcoming special session of Parliament, slated to convene from September 18-22.

Furthermore, the change has already found expression in the international arena, with Indian President’s G20 dinner invitations bearing the title ‘President of Bharat,’ replacing the traditional ‘President of India.’ Such developments signal a profound shift in India’s historical and cultural narrative.

Confirmation of this significant development has come to light as Rashtrapati Bhawan extended invitations for a G20 dinner scheduled for September 9th, notably bearing the title ‘President of Bharat,’ a departure from the traditional ‘President of India’ designation. This shift reverberates deeply with India’s constitutional fabric, as pointed out by Congress leader Jairam Ramesh in a Twitter post.

He highlighted that Article 1 of the Constitution, which currently reads, “India, that is Bharat, shall be a Union of States,” now raises questions about the very essence of this “Union of States.” The alteration in nomenclature not only reflects a symbolic transformation but also prompts a broader discourse about the evolving national identity and its constitutional implications.

Several prominent BJP leaders, including Himanta Biswa Sarma, the Chief Minister of Assam, have openly voiced their endorsement for the proposed renaming of the nation to ‘Bharat.’ Sarma expressed his support via a post on a social media platform, where he proclaimed, “REPUBLIC OF BHARAT – happy and proud that our civilization is marching ahead boldly towards AMRIT KAAL.” 

This rallying of support from influential figures within the BJP underscores the growing momentum behind this transformative initiative, emphasizing the aspiration to forge a new identity rooted in India’s rich heritage and historical significance.

Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar firmly asserted, “Our country is ‘Bharat,’ there should be no doubt about this. Congress seems to find fault with everything.” Chandrasekhar’s remarks encapsulate the ongoing debate surrounding the nomenclature of the nation. Additionally, the resonance of ‘Bharat’ as the rightful name for the country was echoed by the RSS chief during his address in Guwahati. 

He emphasized that the name ‘Bharat’ has been an enduring descriptor since ancient times and ought to be upheld in the contemporary context, underscoring the historical continuity and cultural significance associated with the name. These affirmations from political and cultural leaders underscore the deep-rooted sentiment in favor of adopting ‘Bharat’ as the nation’s official identity.

At an event organized by the Sakal Jain Samaj, RSS chief Mr. Bhagwat asserted that the name ‘Bharat’ has been the country’s identity for centuries, transcending language barriers and remaining constant throughout history. Additionally, BJP Rajya Sabha MP Naresh Bansal championed this proposal during the recently concluded monsoon session in the Upper House, contending that the name ‘India’ symbolizes “colonial slavery” and should be removed from the Constitution. These statements from influential figures emphasize the ongoing debate surrounding the country’s official name, with ‘Bharat’ gaining prominence as a symbol of cultural resurgence and a departure from colonial associations.

A member of the Rajya Sabha pointed out that the British changed our country’s name to India. He highlighted that our Constitution mentions, “India, that is Bharat.” Our country has been known as ‘Bharat’ for thousands of years, a name found in ancient Sanskrit texts. ‘India’ was given by the colonial rulers and symbolizes our history of being ruled by them. So, there’s a call to remove ‘India’ from the Constitution. The BJP has been criticizing the opposition bloc called INDIA (Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance) by saying that ‘India’ reminds us of our colonial past. This discussion is also a political move aimed at the opposition bloc.

Leaders from the INDIA bloc has actively joined the ongoing discussion about changing the country’s name to ‘Bharat.’ Congress leader Jairam Ramesh expressed his disagreement with this idea on Twitter.
