Rename Gateway Of India 'Bharat Dwar', BJP Lawmaker

An MLA of the ruling BJP in Maharashtra reportedly demanded to change the name of the iconic ‘Gateway of India’ in south Mumbai as ‘Bharat Dwar’. "This monument is a symbol of slavery under the British rule", said Raj Purohit, a local lawmaker. "We have renamed Bombay to Mumbai, Malabar Hill to Walkeshwar and Victoria Terminus to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus. Why should this monument, which reminds us of slavery under the British rule, not be renamed", Purohit said.
