Ex-President of Aligarh Muslim University Student Union, Salman Imtiyaz has said that the current BJP government is trying to polarise UP election as the Zila Panchayat of Aligarh sent its resolution demanding Aligarh be renamed as Harigarh.

The outgoing AMUSU president said responding to the proposed rechristening of Aligarh said, “Actually the demand is just politically motivated, as this concept of name changing is based on the Pattern of Hitler regime in which they want to alter history just to set a false narrative”, Imtiyaz told the newster.

“Name change is not the need of the hour, the need of the hour is to establish an equipped healthcare setup through which public can avail the facilities, establish Qualitative Education Institutions through our youth can make their better careers, to address the problem of substance abuse, bring communal harmony through which we can claim unity in diversity, these are the pressing need which should be address but as we all know the current regime is visionless and they don’t have any developmental plan to enter the upcoming assembly elections”, he added.

Earlier, BJP led Uttar Pradesh government had rechristened few of UP’s districts. In 2018, the government changed Faizabad’s name to Ayodhya; Allahabad to Prayagraj and in 2017 that of Mughalsarai was rechristened to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Nagar.

“This regime has totally failed in the period of covid-19, in the sector or employment, they have failed in to tackle the issues of farmers, they have failed in providing quality education, they have failed in terms of welfare schemes. So, now through these name-changing strategy they (BJP leaders) want to create communal tension to polarise the voters of Aligarh city”, the student leader said.

According to ANI report, Mainpuri’s Zila Panchayat has also proposed to change its name to Maya Nagar. Considering the track record of Yogi government, now it is quite confirmed that these districts will have different names before Uttar Pradesh assembly election in 2022.

“Through changing names, we cannot achieve anything. We cannot accelerate our GDP, but on the contrary we would burden the city with extra expenses involved in the process”, he further added.
