YS Jagan is on a spree of giving promises to change names of districts. Earlier he vowed to change Krishna district to NTR district and faced criticism from his own party leaders.
Day before yesterday while addressing a gathering at Undi as part of his ongoing Praja Sankalpa Yatra, Jagan promised to name West Godavari after Alluri Sitarama Raju. It stirred fresh controversy.
Alluri Sitarama Raju was born in Bheemunipatnam on July 4, 1898. He mobilised tribals in West and East Godavari districts to lead revolt against British colonisation. So, Vizag has to be named after Alluri instead of West Godavari, satires opposition.
