Congress leader Pawan Khera on Thursday that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is trying to create a conflict between Bharat and India, adding that the people of India are aware of this fact and have identified these faces.

Addressing a press conference in Delhi, Pawan Khera said, “They (the BJP) are trying to create conflict between Bharat and India. Be it sona or gold, whether you speak English or Hindi, the price of it will not change. The people of India have identified the faces of those who want to create conflict between India and Bharat.”

Taking a veiled dig at Opposition parties over their comments following Rashtrapati Bhawan sending out invitations for a G20 dinner on September 9 on behalf of ‘President of Bharat’, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said India, which is Bharat, is mentioned in the Constitution.

In an exclusive interview with ANI, Jaishankar said that the connotation of the word ‘Bharat’ is also reflected in the Constitution.

The minister was asked about the opposition parties’ reaction and if the government is going to reposition India as Bharat, coinciding with the G20 summit. “Look when you say Bharat in a sense, there is a meaning and understanding and a connotation that come with it, and that is reflected in our Constitution as well,” Jaishankar said.

A controversy erupted after a formal invitation to foreign delegates for the G20 dinner was sent out in the name of the ‘President of Bharat’ and not India, with the Opposition leaders in the INDIA bloc, claiming that the BJP was nervous about the nomenclature. The leaders of the Opposition bloc alleged that the center was resorting to “drama” just because they came together and named their group INDIA. BJP leaders, however, strongly supported the Centre’s wording of the formal invitation to the G20 dinner.
