New Delhi: Lucknow Mayor Sanyukta Bhatia said that Lucknow's famous 'Hazratganj Chauraha' will be renamed after former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee as 'Atal Chowk'. 

A number of councillors were demanding different roads and roundabouts be named after Atal Bihari Vajpayee. 

However, we were looking for something grand enough to fit the stature of the former Prime Minister. 

Hence it has been decided that most prominent and biggest intersection of Lucknow, which is also referred as the heart of the city- 'Hazratganj Chaurha' will be named after Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee." Said Bhatia.
