The country’s name was displayed as ‘Bharat’ on the name card in front of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as he addressed the G20 Summit in New Delhi on Saturday. At the summit, PM Modi was also identified as the leader representing ‘Bharat’.

Symbol of Unity: India’s G20 Presidency

Videos and photos widely shared on social media showed a placard displaying ‘Bharat’, as PM Narendra Modi delivered his inaugural address at the summit. “India’s G20 Presidency has become a symbol of ‘Sabka Sath’ inside and outside of the country. This has become the people’s G20 in India and over 200 meetings were held across the country,” PM Modi said.

Conscious Decision to Use ‘Bharat’

The government has used ‘Bharat’, a name used in the Constitution for the country along with India, in several official G20 documents. It is a conscious decision, reported news agency PTI, quoting official sources.

Welcoming World Leaders at Bharat Mandapam

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director and Chairman Kristalina Georgieva and World Trade Organisation (WTO) Director General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala were among the first to arrive at the newly built venue in Pragati Maidan.
