CSIA or the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport is being renamed. Here’s what it is being changed to. Hold your breath…Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport.
Also, Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus is being renamed as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus. Mumbai Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis, took to Twitter to make the announcement.
This historic win is because of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s blessings & path we are walking on shown by Him,under Hon Modiji’s leadership.— Devendra Fadnavis (@Dev_Fadnavis) November 28, 2016
See it? The word ‘Maharaj’ has now been added to the names.
Twitter was not amused with this latest move by the government. Some were livid while others really did not see a point in the move and how it would change anything at all.
