Hyderabad : Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said some people were asking him if Hyderabad should be renamed as Baghyanagar.
" I said why not," Adityanath said at an election meeting in Lal Darwaza for the upcoming civic body polls.
He also gave the examples of name change like Allahabad to Pragyaraj, among others to stress the possibility.
He also castigated the relationship between the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) and the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM).
A newly elected AIMIM MLA in Bihar did not say the word 'Hindustan' during the swearing-in ceremony which demonstrates the true face of the party, he claimed
According to him the alliance of TRS and AIMIM is hindering the progress of Hyderabad.
Meanwhile, Telangana BJP spokesperson K. Krishna Saagar Rao claimed that Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao's speech exposed his fear of losing in the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections.
"Over 80 per cent of KCR's speech is dedicated to selling fear to the GHMC voters. KCR has produced a horror movie in 45 minutes to influence and scare the voters, as he is scared of BJP's imminent rise in the state and in the GHMC," said Rao.
BJP denounces lies, deceit, misrepresentation of facts and fear mongering, he said adding the GHMC voters will reject the TRS.
