India also renamed several cities long before the BJP took power. Bareilly is to be renamed Nath Nagri, after the Hindu Nath sect. They should be treated as such. The BJP government argued that the city was renamed as Gurugram because the word "Gurgaon" represented a "distorted" pronunciation of the Sanskrit word "Gurugram". Renaming, therefore, is always a hotly debated issue. This is because renaming is a lot more than simply changing a word on a map or a street sign. For this reason, Dalit scholars saw in the name change an attempt by the BJP to appease its more privileged caste voters at the cost of further marginalizing Indians from less-privileged castes. Renaming of a place appears a lot more acceptable to the local population when it is done to erase remaining symbols of colonialism. The renaming of places assumes extra significance in a diverse country like India.
