There will be no change in the name “Swarna Bharat Party”. That conversation is closed.
A few weeks ago I raised the question with readers: Does anyone have any comment regarding the name Swarna Bharat Party?
That conversation is now closed.
The idea of changing the name of the party was first considered in late 2014. After months of discussion, the idea was rejected by members who voted against the change.
The idea was once again considered in early 2017 but this time the discussion did not proceed further. In any event my Times of India of 1 April 2017 has brought the discussion to a complete end. The name recognition it has provided is significant. Further, I am attending the Horasis conference in June as representative of Swarna Bharat Party. The party name is clearly mentioned on its program. And I’ve written to around 90 of its attendees on the Swarna Bharat Party letterhead.
So there will be no further consideration of a change in name of the party.
I would have preferred Liberal Party of India, but that’s not to be. SBP it is.
The name is not bad, anyway. It derives from the logo of Sone Ki Chidiya and by stating that SBP stands for a golden India, the name’s meaning becomes clear to everyone.
