The Dhami government will change the names of all those places, roads and buildings of the British era in the state which are considered to be symbols of slavery. Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami made this announcement in Surajkund, Haryana. Media personnel had asked him a question in this regard, in response to which he said that with the inspiration of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the symbols of slavery and the British name will be changed in Uttarakhand too. Let us tell you that the five vows that the Prime Minister had spoken from the ramparts of the Red Fort included freedom from the symbols of slavery. The Yogi government of Uttar Pradesh is on a campaign to change the names of Mughal and British symbols and places. Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami has also expressed similar intentions.
An exercise in this direction has already been started by the Ministry of Defense. The ministry has sought a list of British-era names of roads, buildings, schools and other places in the military cantonment areas of the state, along with suggestions to replace them. In this regard, a letter has been sent to the military officers and they have been asked to submit a proposal.
Will ask for list of names from CM departments
It is believed that after returning from Surajkund, Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami may ask the departments for a list of British names of places, roads or buildings outside military cantonments and the details of the names to be put in their place.
Dasta’s symbols should be changed: BJP
BJP has supported the announcement of Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami. Party’s state president Mahendra Bhatt said that if Lansdowne’s name is changed, it will be a good step towards eradicating the identity of slavery. The BJP state president also took a dig at the Congress. He said that those who enjoy power in the country for 70 years should think.
