Modi Government is likely to bring a new resolution during the Special Session of Parliament to rename India as Bharat, as per sources. The name change of India to Bharat is Bharatiya Janata Party’s long-standing demand.
In December 2022, Mitesh Patel, BJP MP from Anand in Gujarat raise a question in the Lok Sabha about renaming India as “Bharat” or “Bharatvarsh” as deliberate by the Constituent Assembly in September 1949.
Mitesh Patel claim that “India” signifies the “slavery that the country was subject to”, as the name given by the British East India Company.

Rashtrapati Bhawan has sent out an invite for a G20 dinner on Sept 9th in the name of 'President of Bharat' instead of the usual 'President of India'.
Now, Article 1 in the Constitution can read: “Bharat, that was India, shall be a Union of States.”…
Defending the use of Bharat top BJP leader JP Nadda ask why does the Congress party have “so much objection to every subject related to the honor and pride of the country?”
