AZAMGARH: Hinting that Azamgarh could be renamed as Aryamgarh, UP CM Yogi Adityanath on Saturday said that “setting up of a state university will truly turn Azamgarh into Aryamgarh”.
At a public meeting following the university’s foundation laid here by Union home minister Amit Shah on Saturday, Yogi said, “PM Narendra Modi’s vision of development and Shah’s work has changed the image of Azamgarh. There is no doubt that this university will soon turn Azamgarh into Aryamgarh. It will become operational by the next academic session and students from 400 colleges of Azamgarh and Mau will get degrees from here.”
Saying that Azamgarh had remained the area of concern for him, Yogi said, “ In 2007, one Ajit Rai, an ABVP student leader, was killed in front of the principal office of Shibli National College for demanding recital of Vande Mataram on occasions like Republic Day. Over a month was taken to register an FIR in the case,” he said, adding how he too was attacked during his visit to Azamgarh. “No one can commit crimes like this here now,” he added.
