Gujarat CM Renames Dragon Fruit As Kamalam As Dragon Is Chinese Word, Twitter Can’t Stop Reacting


Changing the name of cities is nothing new in our country but the Gujarat government is taking a unique step of changing the name of a fruit. The fruit in question is not an ordinary one but an exotic fruit! Yes, we are talking about Dragon fruit!

Speaking on the launch of Chief Minister Horticulture Development Mission, the Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani states that the word dragon is a very famous word but it is a Chinese word so his government has decided to rename it as Kamalam as the fruit’s outer shape is that of a lotus. He also says that it is not appropriate to use word dragon in the name of a fruit, adding that Kamalam is a Sanskrit word and there is nothing political in changing the fruit’s name. The CM also informs that the Gujarat government has also applied for the patent of the name Kamalam.

For past some time now, the farmers in Gujarat are growing Dragon fruit in good quantity. Dragon fruit is not much famous in India and it is also not easily available in the markets but as the Gujarat CM announced that its name will be changed, Twitter was not able to remain cool and this is how social media users reacted:
