HYDERABAD: After renaming Allahabad as Prayagraj and Faizabad as Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath, who is currently campaigning for the BJP in poll-bound Telangana, on Monday urged the voters to elect the BJP to power in state if they want to see Hyderabad transform into 'Bhagyanagar'.
