India vs Bharat Renaming Row: The controversy that started over writing ‘President of India’ instead of ‘President of India’ on the invitation letter for the dinner of G-20 conference is increasing. The opposition has claimed that the central government is trying to change the constitution and the name of the country. At the same time, the government has rejected these claims. TMC leader Abhishek Banerjee has now targeted the BJP regarding this matter.
TMC MP Abhishek Banerjee posted on X on Wednesday (September 6) saying, "India vs India is a diversionary issue spread by BJP. Let’s leave this issue behind and hold the central government responsible for rising prices, rampant inflation, communal tension, unemployment, border disputes and their hollow rhetoric of nationalism."
Mamata Banerjee also raised questions
TMC Chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had also given a statement on this matter. He said on Tuesday, "We all know that India is India, so suddenly what happened that there was a need to use only India in the name of the country in the official invitation. In English we say India, whereas in Hindi we say Bharat, what is new in this."
INDIA vs BHARAT is just a distraction orchestrated by the BJP. Let’s cut to the chase and hold the govt accountable for skyrocketing prices, rampant inflation, communal tensions, unemployment, border disputes and their empty rhetoric of Double Engine and Nationalism.
