Now Allahabad will be Known for its New Name “Prayagraj”

Uttar Pradesh Cabinet has marked a new history by giving a new name to the “Allahabad.” Allahabad is now known for its new name “Prayagraj”. The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath has given the approval to rename it as Prayagraj on Tuesday. According to Mr. Siddharth Nath Singh who is the senior Cabinet Minister of UP, the proposal to rename the Allahabad has came before Kumbh. He further said that the major texts of India such as Rig veda, Mahabharat and Ramayana had also mentioned the name “Prayagraj” for Allahabad.

Addressing the Margdarshak Mandal Meeting pertaining to the Kumbh a few days ago, the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that Allahabad should be called as Prayagraj. Giving their ascent to his words, all the people, sages and seers were happy with this decision.

Journey of the name “Allahabad” to the “Prayagraj”

First of all the attempt to pass the approval for renaming Allahabad as Prayagraj was made in 1992 by the UP Chief Minister. Further, in 2001, Rajnath Singh’s cabinet had made their efforts to do the same. But, finally, in 2018, our Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has marked change in history by renaming Allahabad as Prayagraj.
