Following the name change of Mughalsarai junction, Allahabad and Faizabad, the next target of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Yogi Adityanath ji’s government is Lucknow’s Zoo which was once imposed on the name of Nawab Wazid Ali Shah. But now the name of the yogi government, changing the name after one, has now gone to the Nawab Wajid Ali Shah Zoo at Lucknow. According to the news from sources quoted, the name of Nawab Wajid Ali Shah Zoo can be changed soon.
According to the news received, the name of Lucknow Juo may be the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Zoological Garden instead of Nawab Wajid Ali Shah. This can be announced early. After the Ikana stadium, the capital can get this second house named Atal. It is being said that on December 25, the name of Zoo of Lucknow can change on Atal Jayanti. Significantly, in 2015, the Akhilesh government changed the name of the Lucknow Zoo to the last Nawab Wajid Ali Shah Zoological Garden of Awadh.
Let’s say there are 13 lakh visitors every year in Lucknow Juhu. In a talk with journalists at Lucknow Ju Conclave, Minister of Forests Dara Singh Chauhan said in response to a question about renaming, that the department will take a decision on time. Let us tell you that the name of the Lucknow Zoo has been changed three times before this. Lucknow Joo was made in 1921 in the British rule. The name of the Prince of Wales zoological garden was named after the then Prince of England.
About 80 years after the country’s independence, the name of the name was changed to Lucknow Zoological Garden on June 4, 2001. Then in March 2015, it was named after the last Nawab Wajid Ali Shah of Awadh in the Akhilesh government and now the Yogi Government can name the zoo after the name of Atal ji.
