The extremists sent a proposal to the UP government to name Aligarh Harigarh

The district panchayat, based on partisan Hindu extremists, has sent a proposal to the UP government to change the historic name of the city of Aligarh in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh to Harigarh.

 It should be noted that even before this, many cities and railway stations in UP were renamed, the most important of which was renamed Allahabad.

Earlier this month, Bharatiya Janata Party assembly members met UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and asked him to change the names of cities and districts.

Another district, Ferozeabad, has been renamed Chandra Nagar. 

It may be recalled that this proposal came up only six months before the UP state election and it seems that this issue will be used on the occasion of the election.
