Allahabad Is Now Prayagraj & Social Media Doesn't Know What To Do With This Information

Sign in to follow this  


In a historic move today, Uttar Pradesh Minister Sidharth Nath Singh announced that Allahabad has now been renamed to Prayagraj. 

The move was in a pendulum state for a while, ever since CM Yogi Adityanath had announced that the name change was being contemplated. The move was welcomed and placed ahead of the beginning of the ' Kumbh Mela '.  

Social media obviously has a lot of opinions around the decision.

It should have been 'Prayaaga' not #Prayagraj. But i'll still clap for @myogiadityanath for doing it. I don't care if its officially 'Prayagraj'. I am going to call it Prayaaga.

Names like 'Allahabad', 'Bakhtiyarpur' reek of blood on the Islamic sword that swung for centuries.

Prayag is the erstwhile name of Allahabad that was changed by Akbar after he implemented a religion called "Deen E Ilaahi".

Logically it is fair to rename this place based on its history.
The hue and cry of some people make no sense.

If Madras cn bcm Chennai, Bombay can bcm Mumbai,Victoria terminus can bcm CST, Why can't Allahabad bcm Prayagraj?
Prayag is the original name of the city since vedic times,Why nobody questioned whn Calcutta was renamed to Kolkata although ppl wr dying of starvation n riots in WB?

While the move has been welcomed by a lot of people, some people on social media feel that the attention meant for this change could have utilised for making other crucial changes in the country and the state.

Allahabad is all i will continue to call.....
Focus on real issues. Suck gimmicks wont work

Exactly I still call Madras, Bangalore, Calcutta, Bombay, Mohali and Now it will always be Allahabad no matter what these governments only are trying to appease their vote bank nothing else

And then, there are some who find humour in everything.

Modi Ji : Rupee is falling continuously, what should we do to fix it?

Yogi : Rupee Ka naam badal kar  Kuwaiti Dinar rakh do#Prayagraj

Well, who knew that when Shakespeare said 'what's in a name'?, little did he know that centuries later, a name could divide people like this. 

We agree, it will take a while for anyone and everyone to adjust to this name change, but can the Government now focus on more crucial issues at hand as well?
