Hyderabad will be renamed as Bhagyanagar in case the BJP comes to power in Telangana, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath declared on Wednesday.
“Hyderabad will become Bhagyanagar like we did it in Uttar Pradesh where we changed Faizabad to Ayodhya and Allahabad to Prayagraj,” he told a rally in Nizamabad District of Telangana.
The announcement was made whie addressing a series of election rallies in support of Bharatiya Janata Party candidates in the State on the last day of the campaign. He said only the BJP could turn Hyderabad into Bhagyanagar.
On Sunday, while campaigning in Telangana, the firebrand Yogi said if the BJP camed to power, Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) President Asaduddin Owaisi will flee Hyderabad like Nizam was forced to flee.
Yogi, who has a huge following on social media and in the Uttar Pradesh as well, continued his attacks on MIM at the four meetings he addressed on Wednesday.
“If BJP comes to power MIM, which wants to capture Bodhan will run away. They will not be seen anywhere. BJP will shatter their plans to create riots. We will expose them,” the UP CM said and alleged that MIM leader openly supported terrorism.
He also declared those involved in anti-national activities and those who have a mentality to create riots were a hurdle in development, and they need to be exposed.
He said while providing good governance and ensuring development in the country, BJP would strengthen nationalism to fulfil the dream of ‘Ram Rajya’.
Targetting Congress, Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), Yogi said these parties wanted to work only for Muslims and can’t think beyond Muslim politics.
He alleged that all the three parties were doing slavery to ‘Nizam Shahi’ and unless Telangana gets liberation from ‘Nizam Shahi’ development was not possible.
While speaking at Telangana’s Karimnagar area, Yogi stated that if BJP came to power, it would suppress ISI, naxalism and other anti-national activities with an iron hand.
