- CM Yogi gave directions to change Azamgarh’s name as Aryamgarh
- Amit Shah suggested the university on behalf of Suheldev
In Uttar Pradesh, the agitation over the assembly elections has started to increase. Along with the opposition parties, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is also looking at the Purvanchal with almost a third of the seats, correcting for caste and other equations. On Saturday, Union Interior Minister Amit Shah and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath were in Azamgarh, the parliamentary constituency of the national Samajwadi Party (SP) Chairman Akhilesh Yadav. Interior Minister Amit Shah and UP CM Yogi Adityanath laid the foundation stone for a state university in the parliamentary constituency of the Supreme SP.
Amit Shah, while addressing the program, suggested naming this university after Maharaja Suheldev. At the suggestion of Amit Shah, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath also made this announcement immediately. CM Yogi announced that this university being built in Azamgarh will be named after Maharaja Suheldev.
CM Yogi also said that this university will remain Azamgarh by doing Aryamgarh. It is worth mentioning that the UP government has been accused by the SP of changing the names of the cities. Now the CM has indicated the exercise of also changing the name of the parliamentary constituency of the Supreme SP. Along with this, the card of creating a university in the name of Maharaja Suheldev has also been played to woo the voters of Rajbhar.
Let us report that in the last elections, the leader of Rajbhar and national chairman of the Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party, Omprakash Rajbhar, had entered the electoral contest in alliance with the BJP. This time Omprakash Rajbhar has announced an alliance with SP. The announcement to name the university being built in Azamgarh after Maharaja Suheldev is being seen as an attempt to woo Rajbhar voters after breaking the alliance with Omprakash Rajbhar and going with the SP.
There are a good number of voters of the Rajbhar caste in Purvanchal. Voters of the Rajbhar caste play a decisive role in some 40 seats in the Purvanchal assembly. Ahead of the 2022 assembly elections, Rajbhar has become the center of politics.
