Controversy ensues as Maharashtra CMO refers to Aurangabad as Sambhajinagar

The Shiv Sena that heads the Maha Vikas Aghadi has been for a couple of years now demanding that the city of Aurangabad be renamed. Controversy ensued around it as the Maharashtra CMO mentioned referred to Aurangabad as Sambhajinagar in one of his tweets. This ticked Congress off because it is against changing the name of the city. The Bhartiya Janata Party however believes that the drama behind renaming the city is staged before the votings to appease the people and gather a vote bank. There could be a little truth to BJP's accusation however it's hard to tell because the BJP too could be trying to get its own share of vote bank from this controversy. No formal initiations have have been made to actually change the name of Aurangabad
