‘If Faizabad can become Ayodhya, Hyderabad can be renamed Bhagyanagar’: UP CM

Amid the campaigning for Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday pitched for renaming Hyderabad as Bhagyanagar.

"Some people were asking me if Hyderabad can be renamed as Bhagyanagar.

I said, 'Why not?'

I told them that we renamed Faizabad as Ayodhya and Allahabad as Prayagraj after BJP came into power in Uttar Pradesh.

Then why can't Hyderabad be renamed as Bhagyanagar?" Adityanath said at a roadshow in the Malkajgiri division of Hyderabad.
