Views expressed by dignitaries during the concluding rally

1. Today’s march was like celebrating ‘Gudhi Padava’ ! – Shivendra Raje Bhosale, MLA-BJP

The crusade of last 30 years for the change of name of this city has become successful. Congratulations to the State and Central Governments for demolishing unauthorised constructions on Pratapgad and changing the city’s name ! I felt like I am celebrating ‘Gudhi Padava’ as I could see the saffron flags displayed everywhere.

2. The name of Aurangabad has been changed; now, its character will also be changed ! – Suresh Chavhanke, the Chief Editor, Sudarshan News 

Where was the need for giving the name of Aurangzeb to this city ? Aurangzeb was a cruel emperor. He killed his own brother and imprisoned his son to become king. He couldn’t fulfill his dream of becoming an emperor for 27 years. The Marathas kept him on his toes. He cannot be compared with Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj who sacrificed his life for the protection of his Dharma. The name of Aurangabad has been changed; now, its character will also be changed. Recently, a meeting of G20 nations was held at Sambhajinagar. The representatives were shown ‘Bibi ka Maqbara’. There is a Hindu temple under it which will have to be freed now. Birth anniversaries of Tipu Sultan and Aurangzeb should not be celebrated in the city, in the future.

3. Why fanatics opposed the change of name ? – Raja Singh Thakur, MLA, Bhagyanagar

Fanatics make propaganda about Muslim ministers in the cabinet of ministers of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, then why are they opposing the change of name ? Today, there was opposition to my coming to Sambhajinagar. I haven’t come to the city to stage riots, but I have come for Hindu unification. There are green encroachments on forts. The local administration should pay attention to them. The Archaeology Department should pay respect to those carrying saffron flags to the forts.


1. Many Hindu young men from surrounding villages joined the march on their two-wheelers carrying saffron flags. The participation of young women and people of all age groups was noteworthy.

2. Ballads describing the life history of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj were sung at the beginning of the programme.

3. There were bust-size statues of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj, and picture-frame of Prabhu Shriram carried in the march, on a tractor.
