Mohit Kamboj, the president of the youth wing of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) has changed his last name to “Bharatiya” and said from now Bharatiya will be his “identity”.
He stated that “I want to be the first example of what the campaign wants to achieve. I have changed my surname to Bharatiya and this will be my identity henceforth,” he said.
He said his foundation’s objective is to unite people under a common national identity of “Bharatiyata”, shedding all other identities of caste, culture, region, religion and language.
His foundation ‘Proud Bharatiya’ aims to encourage people to identify themselves by their Bharatiyata, or Indianness. The change of name has been effected in the official gazette as well, he added.
