Mumbai : If BJP comes into the power then BJP would rename to city of Hyderabad to Bhagyanagar, says Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. Chief Minister was speaking at a rally in Goshamahal constituency in the city, along with incumbent party MLA Raja Singh.
Raja Singh who is well known for his provocative statements has repeatedly been booked for hate speech and inciting communal violence by the police and is the sitting MLA from Goshamahal up for reelection.
“If you want to see Hyderabad transform itself into Bhagyanagar, then you should give BJP a chance. While other parties are caught up in vote bank politics, the BJP is the only party that can fearlessly focus on good governance and development. Raja Singh has represented your issues forcefully in the past four years. Now, it is time to vote him back as an MLA,” Yogi was quoted as saying.
Speaking to ANI , Raja Singh said, “Earlier, Hyderabad was Bhagyanagar and in 1590 Quli Qutub Shah came to Hyderabad, he changed Bhagyanagar to Hyderabad. At that time many Hindus were attacked and many temples destroyed. We are planning to rename Hyderabad. In Telangana, BJP will win in majority and then our first aim will be developing the state and second objective will be renaming Hyderabad as Bhagyanagar. We will also change the names of Secunderabad and Karimnagar.”
After Faizabad district in Uttar Pradesh was renamed to Ayodhya by Yogi Adityanath, its time for Hyderabad to rename as Bhagyanagar.
Very often the origin of their names can be traced to kings and their conquests of territories, towns, forts and women. Hyderabad was known originally as Bhagyanagar, a city Sultan Muhammad Quli of the Qutub Shahi dynasty had founded and named after his beloved Bhagmati or Bhagyamati in 1590.
Hyderabad was founded on the River Musi five miles east of Golconda, the capital of the Qutub Shahi rulers in 1591-92 by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah. The Qutb Shahi dynasty founded the Kingdom of Golconda, one of the five kingdoms that emerged after the break up of the Bahamani Kingdom.
The name ‘Bhagyanagar’ is derived from the legend of ‘Bhagmati’, who was a mystic Hindu queen of Muslim sultan Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah. Qutb Shah was the fifth sultan of the erstwhile Qutb Shahi Dynasty who ruled over the Golkonda region of South India in the 16th century.
