#GurgaontoGurugram: every joke you need to know is in these 16 tweets
Gurgaon to Gurugram. Mewat to Nuh. This isn't the first time a city has been renamed. But on the ridiculousness scale, this may be a new high (low?).
This latest name change got the blessing of state of Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar. "Since long the people of the area had been demanding that Gurgaon be renamed as Gurugram," he said, apparent ignorant to all irony because the people of Gurgaon have also, in fact, been asking for roads. And a sewage system. And, you know, air.
The Cong continued its current streak of irrelevance with an irrelevant protest.
While a more insightful critique came from this guy
Some were at a loss for words
But much of Twitter did what Twitter does, and rolled out the jokes. Here, in no particular order of awesomeness:

How can dacoities, murders, mugging and rapes even happen in a place that has both Guru and Ram in its name? #Gurugram— Roflindian (@Roflindian) April 12, 2016
If it was upto the Punjabi Folks, they would've renamed it to GurNaalIshqMeethaOyeHoye instead of #Gurugram— Sand-d Singh (@Sand_In_Deed) April 12, 2016
