Hyderabad: After changing the names of different cities in his home state, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath called for rechristening Hyderabad as Bhagyanagar.

"The name of Faizabad has been changed to Ayodhya. Allahabad has been rechristened as Prayagraj. Some ask if Hyderabad can be renamed. Why Not? It will be named Bhagyanagar," said Yogi Adityanath.

Yogi was holding the rally in Old City which is the stronghold of AIMIM. He also said the AIMIM will be defeated in the election. "They will have to leave from here," he said.

Yogi noted that the TRS led government is not cooperating with the centre and not allowing the citizens of the state to get benefited from the central schemes.

"During the lockdown, the government transferred the money directly into the poor farmer's account. In UP, we provided 35 lakh houses to the poor under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. Around 10 crore people got benefited from Ayushman Bharat Yojna. They got insured for Rs 5 lakh. I am asking how many homes, he has provided in the state," he said.

He alleged that the KCR family and MIM brothers have only benefited from TRS rule in the state. "The intention of KCR is not right. He is accountable for the corruption in the state," said the UP CM.

The controversial Chief Minister also attacked AIMIM. "The MLA of the party said he will not say Hindustan in Bihar. These people are living in India. They are eating the food from this land. They have to follow the constitution," said Yogi.

Invoking Sardar Patel, he said the first home minister helped the citizens of Hyderabad to get rid of tyrant Nizam. "In 1948, the Nizam was not ready to merge Hyderabad with India. He tortured citizens, women of the state and we got rid of him. We will build a monument. We will celebrate September 17, the day when we got rid of Nizam," he said.

Meanwhile, Union Minister of Home Affairs Amit Shah will visit Hyderabad on Sunday, the last day of canvassing for the Greater Hyderabad Municipal elections. Shah will start the campaign from Bhagyalakshmi temple in the Old City.
