Haryana Government has decided to rename Gurgaon as Gurugram and Mewat as Nuh. But the decision to change the name will be placed before the Haryana cabinet before being sent to the Union Government.
The decision to change the name of Gurgaon was taken on the basis of the representations received at several forums by the people of Gurgaon as they stated that Gurgaon had been a centre of learning where the princes used to get education and known as Gurugram since the times of Guru Dronacharya.
The city’s name change stems from a proposal by the municipal corporation in 2012. A committee had been formed to address the issue.
However, Mewat is not a town. It is a geographical and cultural unit spread beyond Haryana in the adjoining States of Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan. The Headquarters of Mewat district is at Nuh town. The decision of changing its name was taken following the demand of people of area and the elected representatives. They had been demanding that the name of Mewat be changed as Nuh.
So lets discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Which government has decided to change the name of the two cities recently ?
2. As the changes what will be the new name of Gurgaon and Mewat ?
3. Who is the Chief Minister of Haryana ?
