Mumbai's Elphinstone Road station renamed as Prabhadevi
20 July 2018 Current Affairs: The station named after Lord Elphinstone, the Governor of Bombay Presidency from 1853 to 1860, has been rechristened as Prabhadevi in honour of a local deity of the same name and to erase a "colonial" name.

This renaming was first proposed by Shiv Sena leader Diwakar Raote in 1991.
