BJP MLA Requests UP CM To Change The Name Of Agra To Agravan. Here’s How Twitterati Reacted

BJP government is on fire; not for development but for renaming/restoring the names of Indian cities. After changing Gurgaon to Gurugram, Allahabad to Prayagraj and Faizabad to Ayodha, now Agra’s name may change to Agravan.

As per a leading daily, Jagan Prasad Garg, a BJP MLA from Agra North has written a letter to UP CM Yogi Adityanath requesting to change the name. He said that Agra has no specific meaning so it should be changed to Agravan considering there are lot of forests (van) and Agarwals in the city.

The MLA also said that the city was earlier known as Agravan only and it has a mention in Mahabharat too. He said that the name got changed to Akbarabad and then Agra with time suggesting that there’s a need to restore the original name now.

He also said that he will meet CM and request him to change the name of the city to Agravan. As the news came out, Twitter is flooded with reactions and here’s how people are reacting-
