New Delhi, Aug 4, 2017: The Centre on Thursday approved the proposal of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s cabinet to rename iconic Mughalsarai railway station near Varanasi after the Jan Sangh leader, as Deen Dayal Upadhyaya (DDU) station.

It is one of the oldest railway stations in India.

This comes as the part of the state government’s bid to revive the legacy of Upadhyaya who died in 1968.

As per the reports, the UP government in its proposal pointed to the mysterious death of Upadhyaya at the Mughalsarai station as one of the primary reasons to rename the station.
