New Delhi: Lok­tantrik Janata Dal men­tor Sharad Ya­dav has hit out at the UP gov­ern­ment for re­nam­ing cities and said such ac­tions amounted to tam­per­ing with his­tory. “I con­demn the move of the gov­ern­ment for its quest of chang­ing the names of cities, streets and roads, etc. at the cost of the tax­pay­ers’ money which is un­jus­ti­fied. There is his­tor­i­cal rea­sons be­hind the names of most cities, and there­fore, tam­per­ing with his­tory can’t be the pre­rog­a­tive of apo­lit­i­cal party one”, Ya­dav said in a state­ment af­ter UP gov­ern­ment re­named Al­la­habad as Praya­graj and Faiz­abad as Ay­o­d­hya. Ya­dav asked the BJP gov­ern­ment to “de­vote its time in pro­vid­ing jobs to youth, in­creas­ing in­come of farm­ers, bring­ing back black money and other pre-poll promises rather than in­dulging in drama.”—
