“Both cities have crossings named after Asaram. Authorities should ensure that their names are now changed after Asaram’s conviction,” AAP state leader Alok Aggarwal said in a press statement here.

“Roads and crossings are named after historical and other personalities so that the coming generations can take inspiration from them. But crossings named after Asaram project the country in a bad light and hence their names should be changed,” the AAP leader added.
