‘Why Can’t Hyderabad Name Be Changed To Bhagyanagar?’, Asks Yogi Adityanath


Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has come out and proposed a name change of the southern city Hyderabad to Bhagyanagar. The statement has attracted criticism.

Speaking at the city of Hyderabad ahead of the civic polls, Yogi Adityanath slammed the ruling government of TRS and also the AIMIM. He accused both the parties of mismanagement and also corruption. He urged the voters to send a message across to the government by not voting for either of the party.


“If the fund of Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi can reach the accounts of 12 crore farmers, then why KCR government has not directly sent the money into the accounts of those affected by the flood? Why the liberty to loot was given to TRS activists? These things tell that the government’s intention was not clear.”

Hyderabad To Bhagyanagar?

He also asked if Faizabad and Allahabad can undergo a name change, why can’t Hyderabad follow the same. He said,

“The election is to make the bhagya [fortune] of Bhagyanagar. When BJP was not there in power in Uttar Pradesh, people knew the name of the district of Ram Janmabhoomi as Faizabad. We came and gave the name Ayodhya. If Faizabad can become Ayodhya, if Allahabad can become Prayagraj, then Hyderabad can also become Bhagyanagar again.”

He also reiterated that the entire world has appreciated the effort of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in containing the novel coronavirus pandemic. He also claimed that the Rs. 20 lakh crore package that was announced for the welfare of the people hit by the pandemic was a success. He said,

“Even on Saturday, when all other leaders were sleeping in the morning, Modi visited Hyderabad and other cities to review the progress of COVID-19 vaccine development.”

He appealed to the voters to make all the BJP candidates victorious in all wards in order to get the Bhagyanagar name.
