Creation of districts–one gimmic after the other!

Talks on people’s interest is just a cover for politicians. In fact they hardly care for them, their sole aim is to cash politics some way or the other. Amethi in Uttar Pradesh was named as Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj district replacing the very original name with its district headquarters at Gauriganj without necessary paraphernelia and without any care for the inconvenience this might cause to its population in the absence of required facilities. The new name was given to Amethi by Mayawati, the then Chief Minister of U.P. as she has along been fond of renaming the places, like she much earlier did in the case of Kanpur University renaming it as Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Uniniversity. As a result of intervention by the Court, Amethi is now again Amethi only and the very prefix of Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj before the district may now not be there at all. The question is as to why the politicians play with the emotions of the people in general. One Chief Minister does something and the other one when his turn comes brings changes. This is nothing but a cheap politics and has hardly to day any thing with the interest of the public as a whole.
