Last month, a Shiv Sena parliamentarian had demanded that Dadar metro rail station, which is coming up near the party's headquarters, be renamed as 'Shiv Sena Bhavan'.
Earlier last year, the Mughalsarai railway station in Uttar Pradesh, one of India's oldest, was renamed Deen Dayal Upadhyay Junction. Also, "Maharaj" was added to Mumbai's iconic Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus.
