As Rename game continues in UP, now the Board Zila panchayat of Kasganj has passed a resolution demanding Kasganj should be renamed to Kalyan Singh Nagar, in memory of the former BJP chief minister who died on 21st August 2021. Zila panchayat president, Ratnesh Kashyap has told media that, the proposal has been unanimously passed by members of the board last week and the proposal has been sent to the State Government for Final Approval.
The Kasganj district was created out of Etah in 2008, under the Mayawati government. At that time, Kansganj was named Kanshi Ram Nagar. In 2012, CM Akhilesh Yadav changed the name of Kanshi Ram Nagar to Kasganj again.
Meanwhile, BJP MLA Dinesh Chaudhary has already written a letter to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, demanding to change the name of the Jaunpur district be changed to Jamadagnipuram. Which will be named after Jamadagni, who was the father of Lord Parshuram, the sixth avatar of Lord Vishnu.
Since 2017, the State government under BJP has already changed the name of Allahabad to Prayagraj, Faizabad to Ayodhya, and Mughalsarai to Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay Nagar. While, the Proposals for changing the name of Aligarh to Harigarh, Firozabad to Chandra Nagar, Sultanpur to Kushbhawanpur, and Mainpuri to Mayan Nagar are already pending with the CMO Office.
