The road, Aurangzeb road which commences from India Gate and leads to prime minister’s home, would very soon be altered to APJ Abdul Kalam road. Although this act is just a tad of homage to such eminent figure who left us all with only memories behind, but a commendable step has been undertaken by the government.
“There were requests from certain sections of the society for changing the name of the road as a tribute to the former President. The matter was placed before the council today which unanimously gave a go ahead for the same”, said Karan Singh Tanwar, Vice Chairman, New Delhi Municipal Council
Since his demise, plethora of requests for designating a road on Kalam’s name flooded Delhi Municipal. Ultimately, the heartfelt love and admiration of Indians paid off and the ‘much-awaited demand’ has got its supply from NDMC.
