Yesterday, social media platforms were littered with messages “Mumbai Central station has been renamed as Nana Shankarshet Terminus with effect from 16 April, 2018” read one Facebook post. Several similar posts were being circulated on other platforms like WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram, and others.
The confusion, it seems, stemmed from a protest organised by the Akhil Bharatiya Daivadnya Samajonnati Parishad earlier this week, in which its members demanded that the station be renamed after Nana Shankar Sheth.
During the protest, members unveiled a standee with a picture of a plaque commemorating the day when the station was renamed.
The barrage of messages prompted Western Railway to issue a clarification. “There has been no change in the name of Mumbai Central station @drmbct,” it tweeted from its official account.
