S Sudhakar Tuesday described the government's decision to rename district to as a ploy to cover up its failure in governance.

The decision, which was announced by Tuesday, also reflects the "anti-Muslim" sentiments of the BJP, he said.

"This is BJP government's ploy to cover up its failure in governance. At the same time, the name change also reflects its anti-Muslim feelings. First it changed the name of to and now their move is to change the name of because they think these are Muslim names", said

He said changing the name of historic towns, places are not necessary as it would not serve any good purpose.
