Low Relevance News

In favour of restoring Allahabad’s name: Ram Naik

Amid a growing clamour by the BJP and Hindu seers to rename Allahabad city as Prayag, Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik has said he is in favour of the change

Mr Naik said changing the name of Allahabad city to its ancient name of Prayag was “appropriate” and timely, given that the Kumbh Mela 2019 was a few months away

Read about Kumbh Mela as intangible cultural heritage. The news is of zero relevance for the exam.

No important details from exam point of view.
