“PM of Bharat” on Visit to ASEAN-India Summit Creates Buzz

New Delhi: Use of ‘President of Bharat’ instead of the traditional ‘President of India’ in the dinner invite to G20 leaders from President Droupadi Murmu has sparked speculations and controversy. At this juncture, a note on the Prime Minister’s visit to Indonesia on Wednesday and Thursday for the 20th ASEAN-India Summit and the 18th East Asia Summit uses the term ‘Prime Minister of Bharat’.

The note was posted on X, by BJP National Spokesperson Sambit Patra.

The opposition Congress immediately targeted the move stating that both the ‘ASEAN-India Summit’ and the ‘Prime Minister of Bharat’ were used in the same document.

“Look at how confused the Modi government is! The Prime Minister of Bharat at the 20th ASEAN-India summit. All this drama just because the Opposition got together and called itself INDIA,” Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh posted on the platform.

“Just because many opposition parties have formed an alliance and called it INDIA, will the Centre change the name of the country? The country belongs to 140 crore people, not to one party. If the name of the alliance is changed to Bharat, will they change the name of Bharat to BJP,” the AAP chief asked on Tuesday.

BJP President JP Nadda had also hit out at the Congress and accused the party of objecting to every issue “related to the honour and pride of the country”.
