New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), vice Chairman Kanwar Singh Tanwar on Tuesday informed that Race Course Road may be renamed as Ekatama Road to pay tribute to Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya. Tanwar said that a special council meeting has been called on September 21 to have discussion over the name, after which final decision will be taken.
“When we read the name of great people in history, we realize all the great things that they did for the country. We get inspired from these people. Deendayal Upadhyaya gave Ekatam Manavvad according to which unless and until the poorest people needs are fulfilled, the welfare of the country is not possible. Keeping this in mind we are planning to chang the name of Race Course Road to Ekatama Road,” Tanwar told ANI. If the proposal is accepted, then 7 Race Course Road will be known as 7 Ekatama Marg.
