In the invitation letter for the G20 conference, instead of the President of the Republic of India, it has been written, “president of bharath,”while the information is spreading that the name of the country is going to be changed from 'India' to 'Bharat'. It is obvious that the central BJP government has made efforts in this effort.
It has also been reported that the central BJP government has decided to bring a resolution to change the name ``Bharat'' in the upcoming special session of Parliament.
As a confirmation of that, while Prime Minister Modi is going to Indonesia to participate in the Association of South East Asian Nations ASEAN-&India Conference and the 18th East Asia Conference, the announcement of the agenda related to Prime Minister Modi's trip also mentions the Indian Prime Minister NarendraModi, i.e. “prime minister of bharath"
With the parliamentary elections approaching, the opposition parties have come together and formed an alliance under the name 'INDIA'. The BJP had objected to naming the alliance 'INDIA'. While a case was filed in this regard, the Supreme Court said that there is no restriction on naming the alliance as 'INDIA'.
In this situation, it seems that the BJP government has seriously decided to change the name of the country India to 'Bharat'. While it has been a constant demand of the RSS to replace the word India with the word 'Bharat', the BJP government has now officially started using it. This has created a lot of confusion among the opposition parties.
While many cities and towns in India have been renamed in recent times, especially after the BJP came to power, it is not practicalto change the name of a country of 1.4 billion people. Changing all the places, features and projects mentioned as India to 'Bharat' will cost more. In a country like India, the world's most populous country, where countless cultures, languages and ethnicities reside within its physical boundaries, changing the country's name is fraught with complications.
For example, if 'India' changes to Bharat, then 'Reserve Bank of India' is also renamed. If that changes, the currency notes and coins in circulation in India will also need to be renamed. Names, announcements and advertisements of many projects in the name of India need to be changed. There are innumerable such practical problems.
India - 'Bharat' will have to spend huge amount of money for name change. That means it could cost Rs 14,304 crore. That is, this amount is equivalent to what the central government spends every month on food security programs that feed 80 crore Indians.
The word Bharat is the word mentioned in the Constitution. There is nothing wrong with accepting it. But why did the name change need to be done so hastily? The reason for that is 'INDIA' alliance. It doesn't matter if patriotism is behind changing the name of the country; How will the people of the country accept the existence of politics?
You say who cares about the will of the countrymen? That's right!
