Hyderabad Referred As Bhagyanagar In PM Modi’s Speech, Triggers Buzz


A buzz was triggered after Prime Minister Narendra Modi he referred to Hyderabad as Bhagyanagar in his speech. PM Modi was addressing his party delegates on the final day of BJP’s national executive meeting.

While quoting PM Modi, BJP MP Ravi Shankar Prasad said, “The PM said Hyderabad is Bhagyanagar, which is significant for all of us. It was in Bhagyanagar that freedom fighter Sardar Patel laid the foundation of a unified India and coined the term ‘Ek Bharat’. And now it’s BJP’s responsibility to carry the legacy forward.”

BJP national general secretary BL Santhosh bolstered the name change buzz after a tweet.

When Union Minister Piyush Goyal was asked by reporters if Hyedrabad’s name would be Bhagyanagar, he said, “When BJP comes into power in Telangana, the CM will decide along with his cabinet colleagues.”

Members of the BJP have been demanding to change the city’s name for several months. Moreover, several members of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) have also demanded to change the name.

The issue had gathered steam during the 2020 Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation polls. Moreover, Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath had urged the citizens to vote for BJP as the party will transform the city into Bhagyanagar.

A day after PM Modi referred to Hyderabad as Bhagyanagar, Telangana minister KT Rama Rao, also known as KTR, sharply responded to it with a tweet. KT Rama Rao is the Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister of Telangana.
