Hours after renaming Mughalsarai Railway station as Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Junction, Minister of Uttar Pradesh Om Prakash Rajbhar expressed that changing of Railway Station names would not help trains to arrive on time.
Mr. Rajbhar represents Zahoorabad Constituency exclaimed, “Changing of names of stations won’t lead to trains coming on Time. The government should rectify mismanagement in Indian Railways.”
On Sunday the inauguration of the newly named junction, Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Junction that was previously known as Mughalsarai, was done by Railway Minister Piyush Goyal, who was accompanied by BJP President Amit Shah and Yogi Adityanath, Chief Minister of UP.
Now decked up in saffron, the station is UP’s one of the biggest and oldest railway junction. Renaming of one of the oldest station of UP was proposed in last year’s August by Mr. Adityanath, which was approved later by the Center government.
In order to show respect to the ideologue of the forerunner of BJP, the Mughalsarai Railway Station was renamed as Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Junction.
