KTR Slams BJP On Hyderabad Re-Naming Situation

Sardar Patel created the phrase “Ek Bharat” in Bhagyanagar, according to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who declared this on Sunday.

Hyderabad: A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi called Hyderabad “Bhagyanagar,” Telangana Minister KT Rama Rao issued a stern retort to a BJP leader who suggested the name change if the party wins the state’s next election.

“Why don’t you change Ahmedabad’s name to Adanibad first? Who is this Jhumla Jeevi by the way,” KTR tweeted, referencing PM Modi’s hometown Gujarat and billionaire Gautam Adani in his response to comments by BJP leader Raghubar Das.

PM Modi, on Sunday addressing a BJP leadership meet in Hyderabad, said it was in “Bhagyanagar” that Sardar Patel, the icon, made the term “Ek Bharat”. The statement sparked speculation that a re-naming was underway.

The Telangana state capital should be renamed ‘Bhagyanagar’, according to a number of BJP officials and the RSS, the party’s ideological parent.

Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, asked voters to support the BJP in order to “turn Hyderabad into Bhagyanagar” while running for the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) in the 2020 election.

KTR was explicitly replying to Raghubar Das, a BJP politician, who on Friday made remarks on renaming Hyderabad.

Mr. Das, stated to the reporters on Wednesday, “Definitely. The way I am seeing it for the past two days, be it the businessmen or normal people, they have a lot of anger towards the TRS (Telangana Rashtra Samiti) government. This is because this government believes in dynasty politics and thinks only about the family. They don’t think about the welfare of the people of Telangana. So people are in favour of the BJP,”.
