India should be called only Bharat, Jain sect leader tells PM

Press Trust of India  |  Bhopal 

Jain Digamber sect's head Acharya Vidyasagarji Maharaj today suggested Prime Minister Modi that the country should be called only 'Bharat', during their brief meeting here today.

Prime Minister Modi also sought blessing of the religious leader.



Among other things, the Jain sect leader suggested Modi that the country should be called only 'Bharat' instead of having the alternative official name of India.

"Vidyasagar and Modi spent around 10 minutes together. He was accompanied by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, Governor O P Kohli and Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan," Jain Digamber community's local spokesman Ravindra Jain told PTI.

"He suggested that the country should be referred to as instead of India. No country has two names and so should be in the case of our nation, he told the Prime Minister," Jain said.

Besides, Vidyasagar also suggested that orders of the courts should be delivered in regional languages, Jain said.

The spiritual leader also expressed concern about students who take loans for education but do not get jobs later, Jain said.

Two years ago, there was a series of talks between RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and Vidyasagar at Ramtek near Nagpur. Two months ago, BJP president Amit Shah had met Vidyasagar in Damoh district.
