With the proposal of renaming the historic city Allahabad to Prayagraj by Yogi Adityanath, Twitterati have been flooding the internet with memes suggesting new names for many celebs, mocking Yogi.
On Friday, hashtag #AajSeTumharaNaam became one of the top trends in India with Twitter users sharing memes using the hashtag.
The Uttar Pradesh Cabinet headed by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday passed a proposal to rename the historic city of Allahabad as Prayagraj. Adityanath said the decision to rename Allahabad was taken keeping in view the ‘feelings and emotions of the people’.
“Allahabad has been renamed Prayagraj by our government. Five hundred years ago the name of the place was Prayagraj as it is at the `Triveni Sangam’ (a confluence of three rivers),” Adityanath said.
While opposition leaders criticised the BJP government’s move, Twitterati poured their creativity in the hashtag #AajSeTumharaNaam
