Crediting legal expert L.M. Singhvi with coining the term, Mr. Advani said ‘Bharatvanshi’ reflected the true description of people with Indian roots settled abroad. “Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) are Bharatvashis like us — people who live here,” he said at a ceremony to mark the 30th anniversary of Antar-Rashtriya Sahyog Parishad, an NGO, here. — PTI
