Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh): Uttar Pradesh Minister Om Prakash Rajbhar on Tuesday dared centre to change the name of Red Fort. OP Rajbhar said, “Inke paas to koi kaam hai nahin. Ye janta ka dimag bhatkane ke liye ye naam badalne ka ek bahane inka hai. Agar himmat ho to Lal Qila ka naam badal dein. Usko gira dein.”
“Jo neta Bihar waale (Giriraj Singh) bayan de rahe hain, wo jis road pe chalte hain usko unke dada banaye hain? GT Road Sher Shah Suri ne banaya hai. Ek nayi sadak bana ke dikha dein, bayan dena alag baat hai. Yeh janata ka dhyaan khaali bhatkate hain,” added Rajbhar.
Giriraj Singh, known for his controversial remarks, advocated erasing all signs of Mughal and medieval era rulers, terming them as invaders who destroyed Indian culture and compared them to Britishers.
