“We are Indians”, residents of ‘Pakistan Wali Gali’ in Greater Noida write to PM Modi and CM Yogi urging name change of their colony

The residents wanted a name change as they were not being able to access basic amenities provided by the government due to the locality's name.

The people residing in ‘Pakistan Wali Gali’ in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh, have urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and CM Yogi Adityanath to approve the name change of their colony.

“We are Indians. Only four of our ancestors came here from Pakistan a long time ago. But still, even our Aadhar card has “Pakistan Wali Gali” written on them. We are part of this country then why are we being segregated in the name of Pakistan,” a local alleged expressing resentment over the discrimination they face due to their localities name.

The area comprising of about 70 houses got its name after some people came and settled down there from Pakistan during partition. The residents, however, said that if their ancestors came from Pakistan it was not their fault.

The residents wanted a name change as they were not being able to access basic amenities provided by the government due to the locality’s name, residents alleged. Recounting their ordeal, they said they want employment and affordable education for their children.

“We do not get employment even after showing the Aadhar card. We spend money on our children’s education but even they will not get employment. We are very disturbed. We request Prime Minister and Chief Minister to change the name of this colony and provide us employment,” said a resident Bhupesh Kumar.
Complaining of mistreatment, another resident said: “People treat us badly as if we belong to another country. This is all because the street is named as “Pakistan Wali Gali”. Meanwhile, showing immense trust in the government he furthered, “We have expectations from Modi ji and we are sure if our voices are heard by him he will surely take action.”
