Rupani, at a press conference on January 19, said the name ‘Kamalam’ was apt as the characteristic fuchsia ‘spikes’ or ‘petals’ of the fruit resemble a lotus in bloom.
Though Kamalam is the name of BJP’s headquarters in Koba, Gandhinagar, and the kamal (lotus flower) is the party’s election symbol, Rupani said no politics was involved in the renaming.
