The Yogi government of UP is now going to change the name of Yamuna Expressway as well. According to the information received, soon the Yamuna Expressway can be known as the former Prime Minister of India, Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee. On November 25, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is coming for the Bhoomi Pujan of Jewar International Airport. In this program, an announcement can be made to change the name of Yamuna Expressway.
Let us tell you that the Yogi government has completed preparations for this. On November 25, PM Modi is coming to Jewar and will perform Bhoomi Pujan of the country's largest airport. After this, Modi is also going to address a big rally in which an official announcement of the change of name can be made. According to media reports, CM Yogi wants that the new name of Yamuna Expressway should also be announced by the PM. There is a plan to change the name of Yamuna Expressway to Atal Bihari Vajpayee Expressway.
Trump card for UP elections
According to BJP sources, this decision is being taken so that due respect can be given to India's greatest and popular leader. Atal Bihari Vajpayee has got the love of every party, everyone has liked him, so the coming generations should also know about his greatness. However, experts believe that UP elections are near and Brahmin votes are being said to be angry with the Yogi government. In such a situation, changing the name of Yamuna Expressway, BJP is going to play a big bet.
BJP realizes that Brahmin votes are very important and other parties were also constantly trying to woo them. Let us tell you that even before this BJP has started many places and its schemes in the name of Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Now changing the name of Yamuna Expressway is also an attempt to give respect there. With this move, BJP is trying to tap the Brahmin vote bank. On November 25, PM Modi himself is going to do Bhoomi Pujan of the country's largest airport. He will address a huge rally during that Bhoomi Pajun. If the party is to be believed, around 2.5 lakh people can attend that rally.
