Mughal Sarai Station officially renamed as Deen Dayal Upadhyay Junction

New Delhi, June 5: The Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday released a notification stating that Mughal Sarai Junction has been officially renamed as the Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya Junction.

Last year, Yogi Adityanath led government gave a proposal to the Centre in a bid to revive the legacy of Upadhyay, who was found dead in 1968 at this station itself.

The Mughal Sarai Junction was built by the British in the 1800s as a prime station linking New Delhi to Kolkata.

The junction, the fourth busiest railway station in the country, is situated on the main Howrah-Delhi Grand Chord line
