New Delhi, Jan 20: The Supreme Court on Monday pulled up Uttar Pradesh government, over its decision to rename Allahabad as Prayagraj.

A Supreme Court Bench, headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde, issued notices to the state government on a plea, challenging the High Court order on the matter. In its order dated February 26, 2019, the Allahabad High Court had quashed the petition filed by Lawyer Shadan Farasat, stating that a mere name change of the city will not affect the public interest.

The High Court had also said that it cannot interfere with the policy decision of the government. (UNI)
