Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday released a notification stating that Mughal Sarai Junction to be renamed as Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya Junction. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath approved the proposal of renaming the station June last year, at a cabinet meeting and forwarded it to the Railway ministry. 

After Railways’ approval, the proposal was sent, for the governor’s assent which was given recently.

Railway Minister Piyush Goyal tweeted "The Mughalsarai Junction was renamed in Uttar Pradesh, given the demand of the citizens, Deen Dayal Upadhyay junction. I am happy that the name of a Deen Dayal ji, which gives great idea as Atayoday, will now go to the junction". 

The move is seen as bid to revive the legacy of the Jan Sangh leader Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, who was found dead near Mughalsarai station in 1986. 

The junction is the fourth busiest railway station in the country and is located on the main Howrah-Delhi Grand Chord line.

Opposition parties, including Congress and Samajwadi Party, have been opposing the Uttar Pradesh government’s move to rename Mughalsarai.
