NEW DELHI: What will the united Nations do if the Modi government decides to officialy change the name of the country from India to ‘Bharat’? A senior United Nations official has clarified that the UN considers from countries to change their names when such requests are received.

This statement comes in the midst of a controversy over president Droupadi Murmu’s G20 dinner invitations which referred to her as ‘President of Bharta’ instead of ‘President of ‘India’.

Deputy Spokesperson for UN secretary Antonio Guterres, Farahan Haq, explained on Wednesday that the UN had previously responded to a formal request from the Turkish government when Turkey changed its name to Turkiye last year.
