Prayagraj, November 10: Uttar Pradesh Cabinet Minister and Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party chief Om Prakash Rajbhar has targeted the UP government after the names of Mughalsarai and Faizabad were changed by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. He said that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) changed the names of Mughalsarai and Faizabad as they were named after Mughals. But BJP has three Muslim faces- National Spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain, Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and UP Minister Mohsin Raza why don't they change their names first, reported news agency ANI.

"BJP changed the names of Mughalsarai & Faizabad. They say they were named after the Mughals. They have a National Spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain, Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, UP Minister Mohsin Raza - 3 Muslim faces of BJP, change their names first," says Rajbhar. Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath Slammed by Opposition for Renaming Faizabad to Ayodhya.

He further added, "This is all a drama to distract the backward & oppressed whenever they raise their voices to demand their rights. No one else has given the things which Muslims gave. Should we throw away GT Road? Who built the Red Fort? Who built the Taj Mahal? Yogi Adityanath Claims Mughal Emperor Akbar Was Not Great, But Only Maharana Pratap Was!

This comes after the names of Mughalsarai, Faizabad and Allahabad were rechristened as Deendayal Upadhyaya, Ayodhya and Prayagraj, by the BJP led UP government. The renaming of the cities was slammed by the opposition parties. A few days before, Gujarat Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel also hinted that Ahmedabad can be renamed as Karnavati, this move was criticised from Congress leaders and said it is the jumla of a saffron party to gather votes before elections.
