“It is a long process. Both Central government and state government gives their nod and then the name of the railway station changes,” said Shekhawat.
Earlier in 2018, the name of the village was changed from Miyan ka Bada to Mahesh Nagar but the name of the railway station was not changed.
The development has come barely a couple of days after the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) alleged that the Congress government in Rajasthan was avoiding accountability after demolishing “ancient” Hindu temples in Alwar district.
The state government has suspended two senior officials of the Rajgarh municipality in Alwar following a backlash over the demolition of two temples as part of an anti-encroachment drive to widen a road in the municipal town.
