Naidu To Rename Vijayawada?

If Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu has his way, popular city of coastal Andhra Vijayawada might soon be renamed as Bezawada.
According to sources, Naidu has proposed to change the name of Vijayawada as Bezawada soon after the completion of ongoing Krishna Pushkarams.

It may be mentioned that the Naidu government changed the name of Rajahmundry as Rajamahendravaram after Godavari Pushkarams and now, it is being referred with the changed name in all the official correspondences.
Vijayawada got its name after mythological character Arjuna of Mahabharata, who was also known as Vijayudu. He came to this place and performed penance on Indrakeeladri hill, which now hosts Kanakadurga temple. That is why this place was called Vijayawada. However, people normally call it Bezawada (corrupt form of Vijayawada) and it is also very popular on that name. 
Naidu now feels it should be renamed as Bezawada in tune with the popular sentiment. Let us see what saffron parties say about it.
