Changing names of states and other things is becoming a possible trend – It seems Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani is following Yogi Adityanath’s footsteps as he has decided to rename dragon fruit as ‘Kamalam’.

According to the CM, the word dragon for the fruit sounded inappropriate and so the Gujarat government had decided for the fruit to be called Kamalam. Yes, you read that right!

“We have applied for the patent of the Dragon fruit to be called Kamalam. But as of now, we the Gujarat government have decided to call the fruit as Kamalam. Even though the fruit is known as dragon fruit, it doesn’t sound appropriate. The word Kamalam is a Sanskrit word and the fruit does have the shape of the lotus, so we have decided to call it Kamalam, and there’s nothing political about it,” CM Rupani said.

It didn’t take much time for the internet to explode with memes and jokes – many even trolled the Gujarat government for the ‘ridiculous’ decision.

Here are some of the best reactions:

 

 

Notably, the lotus is the symbol of the BJP and the state BJP headquarters in Gandhinagar is also named ‘Shri Kamalam’.
