UP's chief minister Yogi Adityanath announced the decision to rename the Mughal Museum being constructed in the city of Agra after Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
आगरा में निर्माणाधीन म्यूजियम को छत्रपति शिवाजी महाराज के नाम से जाना जाएगा।— Yogi Adityanath (@myogiadityanath) September 14, 2020
आपके नए उत्तर प्रदेश में गुलामी की मानसिकता के प्रतीक चिन्हों का कोई स्थान नहीं।
हम सबके नायक शिवाजी महाराज हैं।
जय हिन्द, जय भारत।
The press statement quoted Yogi Adityanath saying,
How can Mughals be our heroes? The very name of Shivaji will invoke a feeling of nationalism and self-esteem.
This news was issued to the officers during a meeting that Adiyanath held from his official residence via video link to review Agra division’s development works and the Covid-19 situation.
