Aurangabad, Osmanabad renamed again: Shinde-Fadnavis okay fresh proposal, stay same decision by MVA

Mumbai, 16/7:In an embarrassment to the Shiv Sena, the new Eknath Shinde-Devendra Fadnavis government on Saturday decided to rename the Aurangabad district as Chhatrapati Sambhaji Nagar and Osmanabad as Dharashiv.



The previous Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi government had taken the same decision on June 29, in its last Cabinet meeting, when the political crisis was unfolding in the state.


In the first Cabinet meeting of the new government on June 30, after Shinde and Fadnavis were sworn in as Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister, respectively, the minutes of the previous meeting came in for confirmation, however, the duo asked Chief Secretary Manukumar Srivastav to put in a fresh proposal.
