New Delhi: The Centre on Monday decided to rename the lawns of Rajpath and Central Vista will be renamed as Kartavya Path.
Sources said that NDMC has convened a special meeting on 7th September with the objective of renaming Rajpath and Central Vista lawns as Kartavya Path.
PM Modi in his speech on August 15 stressed on the abolition of symbols relating to colonial mindset. In the run up to 2047, PM has also stressed upon the importance of duties. Both these factors can be seen behind naming of ‘Kartavya Path’.
The entire road and area from the Netaji statue to the Rashtrapati Bhavan will be known as Kartavya Path.

This is also a message to the ruling class that the era of rulers and subjects is over.
Earlier, as per the ethos of the Modi Government to make nomenclature more people centric, the name of the road on which PM’s residence is located was also changed from Race Course Road to Lok Kalyan Marg.
