Madhya Pradesh: Burhe Balaji Hanuman Tekri Marg renamed as Sagar Singh Sisodia Marg

Guna: The Burhe Balaji Hanuman Tekri Marg of Guna has been renamed as Sagar Singh Sisodia Marg after the freedom fighter and former MLA Sagar Singh Sisodia. The inscription plaque bearing the new name was unveiled by Rajya Sabha MP Jyotiraditya Scindia in a program on March 1 organised by the Municipal Council of Guna.

While addressing the gathering, Rajya Sabha MP Scindia said that everyone will have to adhere to the decision taken by the municipal council. "Once the road is renamed a statue of Sagar Singh Sisodia should also be installed. All the places being renamed after great personalities will have their statues too installed.
