Akhilesh Yadav and name change

Akhilesh Yadav has done what no Indian politician has done. He changed the names that were changed by Mayawati and reverted to former names. Mayawati had changed the names of Amethi, Hathras, Kanpur Dehat, Shamli, Sambhal, Kashganj, Hapur and King George Medical University to Chhatrapati Sahuji Maharaj Nagar, Mahamaya Nagar, Jyotiba Phule Nagar, Ramabai Nagar, Prabudhanagar, Bheemnagar, Kanshiram Nagar, Panchasheelnagar and Chhatrapati Sahuji Maharaj Medical University. Now they are once again Amethi, Hathras, Kanpur Dehat, Shamli, Sambhal, Kashganj, Hapur and King George Medical University.

This act opens possibilities of reverting to former names all over the country. Alexander Dock, Connaught Place, Connaught Circus, Rajasthan Canal, Bangalore, Baroda, Bombay, Calicut, Calcutta, Madras, Poona, Trivandrum, Victoria Terminus and other names can make a comeback and replace the existing official names. Airports, buildings, roads can revert to former names. Lamington Road, Peddar Road, Warden Road can be official names. May be many hospitals and parks will revert to former names.

In English, English words may replace Hindi words. Rashtrapati Bhavan may become Presidential Palace. Prasar Bharati may become Broadcasting Corporation of India. Western Express may replace Pashchim Express.
