Haryana’s millennium city Gurgaon on September 27 officially became ‘Gurugram’ as the Union government accepted Chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar’s proposal for the name change.
A resolution was then passed by the MCG house in 2012 approving the name change.
While Gurgaon MP Rao Inderjit Singh welcomed the move, Swaraj Abhiyan founder Yogendra Yadav was not happy about it and said he will continue to call it Gurgaon.
“I wish the BJP government shows the same alacrity in changing the face of the city, by improving the crumbling infrastructure that is plaguing the city. As a person who was born in here, I’ll continue to call it Gurgaon.”
