Mughal Road in Agra renamed as ‘Maharaja Agrasen Marg’

Agra : Mughal Road in Agra was rechristened as Maharaja Agrasen Marg on Thursday.

“The upcoming generation should be inspired by prominent personalities,” said Agra Mayor Naveen Jain on the decision of renaming the street.

He also said, “The Mughal Road in Agra has been renamed as Maharaja Agrasen road. He has thousands of followers in Kamla Nagar, Gandhinagar, Vijaynagar Colony, New Agra zone, Balkeshwar areas. They had come here on the occasion of renaming of the road and paid their tributes to him.”

Maharaja Agrasen was a legendary king of Agroha, which was a city of traders.

“Earlier, Sultanganj puliya was named after late Satya Prakash Vikal. Also, we had named the Ghatia Azam Khan road in Agra after late Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Ashok Singhal,” he added.

According to Jain, idols of great personalities will be set up in two parts of the state.

“A statue of Gokula Jat, a great warrior will be installed in front of Victoria Park. Also, a statue of Maharana Pratap will also be set up at Yamuna Kinara Road. We have asked Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Union Home Minister Amit Shah to inaugurate the statue,” he said.
