Allahabad will be called Prayagraj from today, Uttar Pradesh Minister Siddharth Nath Singh said after a cabinet meeting in which the plan was cleared. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had announced days ago that the historic Uttar Pradesh city would become "Prayagraj" as it was what people "wished". The saffron-robed chief minister wanted the new name in place before the annual Kumbh Mela, a mega spiritual gathering that brings thousands from across the nation to Allahabad, which features the holy confluence of the rivers Ganga, Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati.
