After changing the name of Allahabad to Prayagraj, Yogi government has faced a lot of criticism from left and right. Especially, the oppositions got one more opportunity to slammed the UP government.
Even on social media, several hilarious memes have been created by the users over the latest decision by Yogi government.
While many people on social media also trolled the government for not completing its promises about the development.
Also, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor joined the row of trolling the government and took a dig at the government by sharing a picture on his Twitter account in which he shows all the names of the cities which have been renamed in the country so far.
He wrote, 'A useful cheat-sheet. If you can’t create, you can at least rename.'
See his tweet:

It might be possible that Tharoor thought that he would be lauded by his followers or Twitterati but, it took wrong for him as he got trolled brutally by social media users. As Tweeple said that Congress was also responsible for renaming so many cities name that he shared himself on his official Twitter account.
Here’s how Twitterati reacted:
Prayagraj was changed by Akbar,someone who was follower of Islam. So what is your opinion in this regard? A Muslim ruler tried to Manipulate the culture of the land by changing name... You may not react only if you do not belong to this land.— Nang Lucky Gogoi (@nanglucky) October 17, 2018
Allahabad is Prayagraj from Ancient time . Mughals changed the name. Now Only a BAD Bharatiya can object renaming Allahabad as Prayagraj.— Nang Lucky Gogoi (@nanglucky) October 17, 2018
All good ones are appreciating the move.
Six of the fifteen named by him. He means Congress couldn't create in 60 years and hence changed the name. Changing names given by British is alright with him. But that done by Muslim bigots is not acceptable to him— Srinivas S (@savanisri) October 17, 2018
Hypocrisy at its height

However, Tharoor is also famous for his vocabulary that he used to share on Twitter account.
