Twitter pans Kejriwal's Barapullah flyover renaming; calls it a political gimmick

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 10 February 2017, 1:49 IST

The Delhi government on 8 June announced its decision to rename Delhi's Barapullah flyover as Baba Banda Singh Bahadur Setu after the legendary Sikh warrior.

An official statement released by the Aam Aadmi Party said, "The decision has been taken when the country is celebrating the 300th anniversary of the martyrdom of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur."

The decision was apparently taken in a meeting chaired by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.

However, this move by the Delhi government is being widely considered as a political gimmick with the Delhi Chief Minister eyeing Punjab before the upcoming Assembly elections in the state.

Earlier this week, the Delhi government launched a special campaign declaring that Punjabi will be taught in all government schools in Delhi, as an optional language.

Here are some Twitter reactions on Delhi government's decision to rename Delhi's Barapullah flyover as Baba Banda Singh Bahadur Setu.
