BJP wants six roads in Delhi to be changed
The Bharatiya Janata Party has demanded that the New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) rename five roads in Lutyen’s Delhi which are named after Mughal emperors.
The Delhi BJP chief, Adesh Gupta requested the renaming of Tughlaq road, Akbar Road, Aurangzeb Lane, Shahjahan Road and Humayun Road.
The sin that was committed during the Congress rule was somewhat corrected under the Modi government while some are left, Gupta said.
When the country is celebrating Azadi ka Amrit Mohatsav, the names of roads after such invaders are a sign of slavery.
There should be an immediate change he added, he also said.

Gupta also demanded the the Aurangzeb Lane be renamed as Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Lane and the Humayun Lane as Maharishi Valmiki Road
