Now after the name change of Allahabad and Faizabad, the state government can now change the name of Azamgarh, Kanpur and Aligarh. In this regard, the Department of Revenue has started preparations. Although the officials are not ready to say anything in this regard yet, the sources claim that names can be changed soon by approving the cabinet proposal for this effect. Aligarh may be in Harigadh..
Aligarh can be named as Harigarh while Azamgarh is being proposed for the name of Aryamgarh. In fact, the demand for aligarh name change is quite old. Vishwa Hindu Parishad passed the proposal in 2015 in Aligarh and said that the ancient name of Aligarh is Harijgarh itself. It was later aligarh. Therefore, it should be done in Aligarh, Harigad. Sources reveal that the state government is preparing to change its name. In any case, this district and city have their own importance in the state and the state of UP.
Kalyan Singh had tried to name the name of Harijgarh while being the Chief Minister in 1992, but at that time there was a Congress government at the center, so his efforts could not be reached. There is a proposal to change the name of Azamgarh in the Purvanchal for the development of majority voters. The demand for this to be done in Aryamgarh is quite old. As an MP, Yogi Adityanath has called Azamgarh in his public meetings as Aryamgarh.
Now the fresh controversy has stood in the name of Muzaffarnagar and Agra. BJP MLA Music Mon has changed the name of Muzaffarnagar to Laxminagar. Jagar Prasad Garg, MLA of Agra North, has written a letter to the Chief Minister and asked for the advancement of the name of Agra. Politics has once again been hightlighted due to accusations of changing the names of opposition parties.
After the name of Allahabad and Faizabad district changed, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party MLA himself has now begun to demand the names of many districts to be changed. The demand for change of name of Muzaffarnagar and Agra has been formally exposed. State Government’s intention behind preserving these two places as the main Hindu pilgrimage places for identifying Hindutva is to preserve Indian ancient culture. The Vishwa Hindu Parishad and the BJP’s associate organizations have been accusing that foreign invaders have forcibly changed old names. Therefore, due to the BJP rule in the center and the state, names should now be changed.
