VHP demands renaming of Delhi as ‘Indraprastha’

via www.organiser.org published on June 29, 2009

Reacting strongly to the statement of Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports Shri MS Gill that Delhi be renamed as Dilli, the Indraprastha Vishwa Hindu demanded that Delhi be renamed as ‘Indraprastha’, the orginal name of Delhi, which has been popular since the time of Mahabharata period. In a statement issued on June 19, the VHP state president Shri Swadeshpal Gupta said the name ‘Indraprastha’, which has been in the vogue for more than 5,000 years should be adopted instead of the name given by the invaders. “If Shri Gill really wants to restore the historical and unique identity to the national capital, he should come forward to rename it as ‘Indraprastha’. If it is done it will restore the lost glory and respect of Delhi,” Shri Gupta said in the statement. He appealed to the government to rename Delhi as ‘Indraprastha’ before the beginning of the Commonwealth Games in 2010.
