Faizabad railway station will be named Ayodhya Cantt, Yogi government changed its name

CM Yogi Adityanath has decided to change the name of Faizabad Railway Junction to Ayodhya Cantt.

The Yogi Adityanath government of Uttar Pradesh has decided to change the name of Faizabad railway station to Ayodhya Cantt. According to the information received, the Yogi government is going to issue a notification in this regard soon. Along with this, this decision of the Yogi government has also been approved by the central government. In Uttar Pradesh, it has been told by the Chief Minister's Office (CMO) that CM Yogi Adityanath has decided to change the name of Faizabad Railway Junction to Ayodhya Cantt.


Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had already announced

Let us tell you that in 2018, Yogi Adityanath had announced that Faizabad would be known as Ayodhya district. On 6 November 2018, the Uttar Pradesh cabinet chaired by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath approved the renaming of Faizabad district to Ayodhya and shifting the administrative headquarters of the district to Ayodhya city.


Allahabad was also renamed as Prayagraj

It is worth noting that earlier in October 2018, the name of Allahabad was changed to Prayagraj. Subsequently, in June 2018, the more than 100-year-old Mughalsarai railway station was renamed after Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) ideologue Deen Dayal Upadhyay. There was a lot of politics on this issue when the name was changed by the government.
