Allahabad Is Now Called Prayagraj & It Has Sparked Hilarious Reactions

Times they are-a changin’, boys. Gurgaon is Gurugram, Musically is Tik Tok, Pirates of the Caribbean is Thugs of Hindostan and Allahabad is now official called Prayagraj (which was apparently its original name 443 years ago). It also marks as the third big name change since the election of Yogi Adityanath-led government in UP.

“Prayagraj was named Allahabad during the Mughal era, around 500 years ago. The place is a confluence of three Holy rivers namely the Saraswati, Yamuna, and Ganga, hence the name Prayagraj.People who have zero understanding of our history and traditions would question the move,” Yogi Adityanath told ANI in an interview.

While some are applauding the decision of restoring the name to its original, others are criticizing the priority of UP Government given the infrastructure of the state is in shambles. Also the fact that changing the name of a city costs a lot of taxpayer’s money, which should be utilized in the development of the city instead.

People are criticizing the Yogi Govt’s decision on social media in one way they know – humor. Check out some hilarious reactions!
