President of India: G20 Dinner Invitation Sparks Disagreement

Today’s G20 invitations to foreign leaders that changed the word “India” to “Bharat” caused a tremendous uproar, with the opposition accusing the ruling BJP of rebranding the country for the sake of political one-upmanship.
For the first time, the “President of Bharat” rather than the customary “President of India” is issuing official invitations to heads of state for a banquet in Delhi .

As the nation gets ready to meet US President Joe Biden, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, and other prominent world leaders, this represents a significant change in terminology on the international stage.
