UP News: The Gorakhpur Municipal Corporation has changed the names of about a dozen wards with Muslim names by issuing a draft order of delimitation. The Samajwadi Party (SP) and Congress have reacted sharply to this move of the government. According to official sources, the name change was part of the delimitation exercise, under which the number of wards in Gorakhpur has gone up to 80, many of which bear names on eminent personalities and freedom fighters.

A senior official said that people can file their objections within a week and after their disposal, the delimitation will be approved. Samajwadi Party leader and Ismailpur corporator Shahab Ansari alleged that the name change was an attempt to polarize. Ansari said the party would hold a meeting in this regard and a delegation would meet the district magistrate on Monday to raise objections.

‘What will the government gain from this exercise?’

Congress leader Talat Aziz termed the name change exercise as a waste of money. I fail to understand what the government will gain from this exercise, the leader asked. However, Mayor Sitaram Jaiswal said the new names instill a sense of pride. He said that the wards have been named after personalities like Ashfaqullah Khan, Shiv Singh Chhetri, Baba Gambhir Nath, Baba Raghavdas, Dr Rajendra Prasad and Madan Mohan Malviya.
