Owaisi Criticizes BJP's Promise to Rename Hyderabad to 'Bhagyanagar'

Hyderabad: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi criticized the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for pledging to rename Hyderabad to 'Bhagyanagar' if the party secures victory in the Telangana Assembly polls. Owaisi questioned the origin of 'Bhagyanagar' and accused the BJP of engaging in divisive politics. He emphasized that Hyderabad is the identity of the people, and renaming it reflects the BJP's hatred towards the city. Owaisi expressed hope that the people of Hyderabad and Telangana would respond fittingly to such divisive politics.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, during his election rallies in Telangana, advocated for renaming Hyderabad as 'Bhagyanagar,' stating that it would change the city's luck. Union Minister and Telangana BJP president G Kishan Reddy supported Adityanath's statement, asserting that the BJP would rename Hyderabad if it comes to power. Reddy compared the potential renaming to the changes made to cities like Madras, Bombay, and Calcutta, and questioned the relevance of the name 'Hyder' in Hyderabad. He expressed the BJP's intention to remove 'Hyder' and rename the city as 'Bhagyanagar' to break free from a "slavish mentality."

It is worth noting that Prime Minister Narendra Modi referred to Hyderabad as Bhagyanagar in a speech last year, associating it with Sardar Patel's campaign to unite India. Telangana is set to hold polls on November 30, with results expected on December 3.
