Ahead of next year’s assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh, the Yogi Adityanath government is planning to change the name of Kasganj district to Kalyan Singh Nagar, in the memory of former UP chief minister Kalyan Singh who died on August 21.

The demand for changing names of districts is in full force in the crucial poll-bound state which will go for polls next year.

The zila panchayat board in Kasganj has passed a resolution to change the name of Kasganj after Kalyan Singh.

The zila panchayat president Ratnesh Kashyap said the proposal has been unanimously passed during a board meeting on Saturday and would now be sent to the state government for the final approval.

The Kasganj district of Uttar Pradesh was formed in 2008 by the Mayawati government and was further named as Kanshi Ram Nagar. Earlier the district was part of Etah.  

Later in 2012, after changing the government, the then Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav was renamed as Kasganj from Kanshiram Nagar.

Proposals for changing the name of Uttar Pradesh district Aligarh to Harigarh, Firozabad to Chandra Nagar, Mainpuri to Mayan Nagar and Sultanpur to Kushbhawanpur are already pending with the Yogi Adityanath government.

Following the name-changing spree, the names of many cities, railway stations, roads and hospitals have been changed in Uttar Pradesh over the past few years since the BJP came to power.

The Uttar Pradesh government has already changed the name of Allahabad to Prayagraj, Faizabad to Ayodhya and Mughalsarai to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Nagar.

If Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government clears the move to change the name of districts Aligarh, Mainpuri, Miyaganj and Kasganj then it would add to a long list of renamed places in Uttar Pradesh.
