The Supreme Court on Monday sought response of the Uttar Pradesh government on a PIL filed by Allahabad Heritage Society challenging renaming of Allahabad to Prayagraj. The Centre had on January 1 last year approved the renaming of Allahabad as Prayagraj. A bench comprising the Chief Justice has issued the notice to the state. This after the Allahabad High Court dismissed the plea upon finding that the state government had the authority to make the name change.
