New Delhi: Amid the ongoing assembly elections, political parties are engaged in a stiff competition to woo the voters even if it amounts to flouting the norms. This is evident as senior political leaders and councilors are busy renaming parks, roads and crossings.

A case of renaming a park in central Delhi's Jangpura area is the latest example of it. A proposal of a park situated in between block A and E of Siddharth Nagar, was passed in the meeting of MCD on January 10, 2006 for renaming it. The then Congress councilor Darshana Jatav had named the park after Saint Ravidas amid pompous celebrations.

However, regional Congress councilor and former Mayor Farhad Suri renamed the park after late Master Budhan Singh last week.

According to the rules there are no provisions to rename the site. But often such incidents have come to the fore which have not boded well with the masses. Showing displeasure over such incidents the people registered a complaint with the Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Wednesday evening.

The people have now asked Dikshit to retain its previous name besides establishing a statue of the saint in the park.
