Deomani Dwivedi, BJP MLA has written to Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Aditya Nath, urging him to rename Sultanpur as “Kushbhawanpur”. “Poet Kalidasa in his book Raghuvansh Mahakavyam had suggested that Sultanpur was actually known as Kushbhawanpur or Kushnagri. A few days back i sent a letter to CM seeking renaming of Sulatnpur,” Deomani Dwivedi said in an interview.
In the past, CM Yogi Aditya Nath has renamed a lot of other cities like, Allahabad became Prayagraj, Faizabad became Ayodhya, and Mughal Sarai became Pandit Deen Dayal Updhayay Nagar. “The name of Kushbhawanpur was renamed forcefully. What is wrong in changing the name which reminds us of slavery.” said the BJP-MLA. He represents Lambhua constituency of Sultanpur.
