The BJP government in Uttar Pradesh officially changed the name of Allahabad district to Prayagraj on Tuesday. The Yogi Adityanath government said that other institutes named after the district would soon follow suit, like that of the Allahabad High Court and University.
But since this renaming, the government has become a target of trollers. A lot of hilarious memes are doing rounds on the social media and finally, Shashi Tharoor took a dig at BJP over Allahabad renaming., Check out what he tweeted.
A useful cheat-sheet. If you can’t create, you can at least rename. pic.twitter.com/Xx4mnBXqaN

Ha ha ha. Please also mention that it is during congress regime that cheating have taken place more. And it is really a revelation that you can 'create' land. May be you think that you are God and not the 'worst Hindu'.
