Who change the names of places in UP? You will be shocked to know it

The Yogi Adityanath government of Uttar Pradesh is often on the target of opponents for changing the names of places.

Even on social media, many mimes were made about the change of name by CM Yogi. At the same time, Samajwadi Party (SP) national president and former CM Akhilesh Yadav, who has repeatedly attacked the Yogi government, has also said that the Yogi government only works to change the name.

But perhaps Akhilesh Yadav forgot the names of the districts he had changed during the tenure of his government. Often this happens in politics, when leaders leave their mistakes and see everyone else. But an RTI  has revealed this. According to the report,. The answer has been given by the Revenue Board of UP.

In response, the Board of Revenue stated that the information of towns and cities does not come under their jurisdiction. But he has given a list of changing names of districts. According to RTI, the names of 11 districts in UP have been changed in the last 10 years. Two of these names have been changed by the Yogi government, while 9 changes have been made by Akhilesh Yadav himself during his government. Akhilesh Yadav changed the names of 8 districts simultaneously. This was done in July 2012. However, the Yogi government had talked about re-implementing the ancient names after renaming Faizabad and Allahabad to Ayodhya and Prayagraj respectively.
