Please refer to Ayodhya Kanda of Valmiki Ramayana - 2.89.21 Guha helps Bharata's army with five hundred boats to cross Ganga river and camp in Prayaga (forest then). or name is older than even Ramayana. Glad that we are seeing a restoration of that name.

Let me understand this. Broken roads, potholes in a city where glorious freedom struggle happened, under was perfectly okay, because it was called Allahabad. But now that its called , same roads are a problem? Looks to me, restoring its name has benefits!
