UP’s well-known Mughal Srai railway station from today will be known as Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhayaya railway station today. The move is seen as a bid by the Yogi Adityanath-led state government to revive the legacy of the Jan Sangh leader who died at the junction in 1968. The main railway station of Delhi-Howrah railway route now will be known as Deendayal Upadhyaya Railway Station.The Central Government has approved the proposal of the Yogi Adityanath Government of Uttar Pradesh, in which the name of the Mughal srai station is to be renamed. In June, the UP government gave its green signal for the proposal to rename the station after Upadhyaya. The following month, the Home Ministry received a request from the state for a no-objection certificate (NOC), which is required to rename stations.
The centre approved the move in early August. The Mughal srai railway station is near Varanasi. Pandit Day Dayal Upadhyaya was the leader of Jana Sangh. On the occasion of their centenary year, the Yogi Government decided to name the Mughal srai Railway Station on them.Where this decision is considered as a big step in the propagation of the policies of the Pandit Deendayal on the other hand, those who have long been engaged in changing the name of Mughal srai to the name of Lal Bahadur Shastri, are calling it a fraud.
