New Delhi’s Race Course Road to be renamed as Ekatma Marg

Image result for lekhi meenakshiIf New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) accept the proposal of BJP MP Meenkashi Lekhi the VIP Race Course Road would be renamed as Ekatma Marg. Ekatma Marg based on the philosophy of BJP ideologue Deendayal Upadhyay.

This is the road where Prime Minister’s official residence is located.

In August last year, Aurangzeb Road in Lutyens’ Delhi had been renamed as Dr A P J Abdul Kalam Road in honour of the late President. NDMC had taken the decision after East Delhi BJP MP Maheish Girri proposed the move to “correct the mistakes made in our history”.

Lekhi said that the existing name, Race Course Road, “does not match with Indian culture”. Upadhyay is remembered by his followers for his concept of ‘antyodaya’ (serving the last man in the queue) and ‘ekatma’ (integral humanism).

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will kick off Upadhyay’s 100th birth anniversary celebrations on September 25.

Lekhi, who is a member of NDMC, said in her proposal to the civic body that as the residence of the Prime Minister is situated on Race Course Road, the new name –- Ekatma Marg -– would remind every PM about the last person of the society.

“The nation is celebrating the birth centenary of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay this year. To take the philosophy of ‘Ekatma’ to the mind of the public at large, and as the name of the road, viz ‘Race Course Road’, on which residence of Prime Minister of India is situated does not match with Indian culture…

“(Lekhi) has, therefore, requested to rename Race Course Road under the NDMC area as Ekatma Marg so that this name would remind every Prime Minister about the last person of the society throughout life,” stated an agenda of the Council Meeting of NDMC which is likely to take a decision in this regard tomorrow.

AAP opposes proposal

AAP MLA Surinder Singh has said he would oppose the move to rename Race Course Road, on which the Prime Minister’s official residence is located, as Ekatma Marg and demanded that it be rechristened after a martyr.

Singh, a former National Security Guard (NSG) commando who suffered injury in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, said several veterans have approached him saying if the road is to be renamed then it should be done to honour martyred soldiers.

Singh, a New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) member, said he would raise the issue in the Council meeting tomorrow.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is also a member of NDMC.
