Bhopal. After Hoshangabad in Madhya Pradesh, the state government has decided to rename another city in the state. This city is Nasrullaganj tehsil of Sehore, the home district of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan. The Chief Minister has announced to change the name of Nasrullaganj tehsil of Sehore district to Bherunda. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan was addressing the closing ceremony of the Prem-Sunder Memorial Cricket tournament held in memory of his parents on Sunday.
Significantly, this city falls in the Chief Minister's constituency Budni Assembly. The demand to change the name of Nasrullaganj to Bherunda was long-standing. On the demand of the people present in the program, he announced the change of name. Recently, on the day of Narmada Jayanti, the Chief Minister announced the name of Hoshangabad as Narmadapuram.
Darasal Nasrullaganj was named after Nasrullah Khan, a member of the Bhopal Nawab family. When the Nawab of Bhopal Sultan Jahan Begum made his youngest son Hamidullah Khan the Nawab of the princely state of Bhopal, he entrusted the jagir to his two eldest sons, and Nasrullah Khan, the city to which Jagir was entrusted, was named Nasrullaganj. Nasrullah Khan and Aubedullah Khan were the elder sons of Begum Sultan Jahan Begum. In whose name the princely state of Bhopal had changed the name of Bherunda in his gazette by publishing Nasrullaganj. Similarly, Bhopal Begum, named between Bhopal and Hoshangabad whose name has now been announced to be changed to Narmadapuram, was also named after her elder son Aubedullah Khan by Bhopal Begum.
