Naming and re-naming of 30 streets in the city have been proposed at the next meeting of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi house later this month.
The Bharatiya Janata Party led-MCD has proposed naming of two chowks and one road after Dr. Sahib Singh Verma, while several other streets are proposed to be named after local social workers and non-government organisations as well.
A chowk on Lawrence Road will be dedicated to NGO Prerna that provides help to the poor and handicapped people.
Likewise a park in Naveen Shahdara would be named after Anurag, who is said to have helped the poor as a social worker and played an important role in starting the Vidhya Vihar School.
There is also a proposal to rename Moti Nagar as Swami Ram Tirath Setu after a religious leader.
MCD Leader of House Subhash Arya said: “Various roads have been named after Congress leaders also. This has nothing to do with a particular party as various streets, roads and chowks are named dedicated to political leaders who are no more.”
There is a proposal to name Abu Park in West Patel Nagar after yet another BJP leader Balraj Khanna.
