The state’s Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was quoted as saying on Saturday, "It might be the wish of many people that Allahabad can be renamed Prayagraj. It will be a very good message. If everyone agrees, we should know this city as Prayagraj and it can be a good start."

This reclaiming of the city’s old Vedic name ‘prayag’ comes just in time for the Ardh Kumbh Mela, which will take place in January next year.
