The practice of changing the names of the cities and roads is not entirely new in India. This time, it is for airports. Several airports in India are likely to get new names soon. Union Minister Dr Bhagwat Karad has said that a related proposal was sent to the central government seeking a new moniker for as many as 13 airports in India. A PTI report, which first published the news, also claimed that Aurangabad airport could be renamed after the Maratha king Chhatrapati Sambhaji. The decision on the matter vests with Cabinet. Dr Karad told PTI that he has been following up on the issue regularly. “There are at least 13 airports in the country that can be renamed. I have been regularly following up on the issue. The Cabinet is expected to take a decision on this,” Karad said. Dr Karad is not the only Minister who brought up the new development. Earlier, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had said that the legislators who go to Delhi should pursue the matter of renaming the airports and get the required approval at the earliest. He revealed the matter while speaking at a virtual inauguration ceremony of an establishment in Aurangabad.
