Shimla is to be renamed as Shyamala
22 October 2018 Current Affairs:

BJP-ruled Himachal Pradesh government is considering a proposal to rename state capital Shimla to Shyamala. The demand was made by right-wing Hindu groups as part of efforts to remove symbols of British rule.

Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur said that his government will seek public opinion on the demand for Shimla’s renaming. A Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) functionary claimed that Shyamala was the original name of Shimla city. State Health Minister Vipin Singh said that he feels that there would not be any harm in changing the name.
