Lucknow sources reported that after Mughalsarai became Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Nagar, Allahabad was renamed as Prayagraj and then Faizabad as Ayodhya last week, the list of districts to be renamed is all set to become longer. Accordingly BJP leaders from various districts are sending letters to the Chief Minister’s Office, suggesting new names for their districts. BJP MLA from Agra Jagan Prasad Garg has suggested that the name of this historic city be changed to ‘Agravan’.
Meanwhile the demand to rename Lucknow as Laxmanpuri began three months ago when senior party leader and now Governor of Bihar Lalji Tandon, wrote about the history of the state capital in his book Ankaha Lucknow in which he claimed that the city originally belonged to Laxman and was known as Laxmanpur. Presently BJP leaders want Lucknow to be renamed Laxmanpuri as a tribute to Laxman, brother of Lord Ram.
Incidentally the Bajrang Dal, has been using Laxminagar as the name of the district in its posters and banners. Moreover the BJP leaders of Azamgarh want their district to be renamed as Aryagarh and those in Kanpur want the district to be named as Kanhapur. Ram Manohar Lochan, a local BJP leader said “Kanpur has no meaning it was known as Cawnpore during the British rule and later was pronounced as Kanpur”.
