Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday decided to name the Mughalsarai railway station after Jan Sangh ideologue Deen Dayal Upadhyaya.

The state cabinet also decided that Nagla Chandrabhan, the birth place of the late leader in Mathura, would be developed as a tourist centre.

The proposal would now be sent to the Railways Ministry for approval. The Bharatiya Janata Party is celebrating the birth centenary of Upadhyaya and will be holding a major event on September 25.

Health Minister Siddharthanath Singh told media persons that the cabinet also decided to establish Deendayal Research Foundations at all state universities and to institute prizes in his name for meritorious students.
