Mughalsarai town of Chandauli district has been renamed Pt Deen Dayal Upadhyay Nagar. The railway station and police station will continue using the old name as no directive to rename them has been received from the railway ministry or police headquarters as yet.
Chandauli district magistrate B L Maurya told TOI, “The district administration received a state government order directing that Mughalsarai Palika Parishad and Tehsil be renamed to Pt Deen Dayal Upadhyay Nagar, on Tuesday night.” Palika parishad executive officer Rajendra Prasad said, “Right after receiving the GO, we engaged painters to replace the old name on the boards installed at the main gate and building of palika parishad. Official stamps bearing the new name have been ordered while order has been placed for printing of new letterheads and other stationery with the new name.”
