Lucknow sources stated that after renaming Mughalsarai as Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Nagar, the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh has now sent a letter to the centre, seeking its approval to rename three airports in the state. Accordingly the airports to be renamed are Bareilly, Kanpur and Agra and all three are defense airports but the state government is in consultation with the Airports Authority of India to facilitate flyers under the regional connectivity scheme in these airports.



Meanwhile the UP civil aviation minister Nand Gopal Nandi said renaming of the three airports was long awaited. “We have reached out to the Centre to get the airports renamed. As per report a meeting with the Union Ministry of Civil Aviation is expected soon. Moreover according to a proposal from the state civil aviation department, the Bareilly airport is to be named ‘Nath Nagri’, which is believed to be an ancient name of the city for its history of having ardent worshipers of Lord Shiva.

Furthermore Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath belongs to the Nath sect and is the ‘Mahant’ (priest) of Gorakhnath temple. Moreover he had earlier renamed the civil terminal of IAF’s Gorakhpur airport as Maha Yogi Gorakhnath Airport, founder of ‘Nath Pant’ (monastic movement). Kanpur’s Chakeri airport is proposed to be named after freedom fighter Ganesh Shankar Vidyarthi.
