MPN India started this petition to K. Chandrashekar Rao (Chief minister of Telangana) and

In 1591, Quli Qutub Shah, the fifth sultan of the Qutb Shahi dynasty founded a new city named "Hyderabad", on the banks of river Musi. Since it's foundation, the city of Hyderabad has thrived economically and culturally. The city is a fascinating example of assimilation of various cultures. As per the 2016 Survey released by Mercer (a global human resources consulting firm), Hyderabad is the best city of live in India. Today, the city of Hyderabad is an outstanding example of cultural diversity, progress and unity of India. 

It's extremely unfortunate that Quli Qutub Shah doesn't get the due credit for his vision and effort in laying the foundation of this city. No monument or road in Hyderabad post Indian Independence has been named after Quli Qutub Shah. Sometimes, one wonders, whether it's being done intentionally by the successive Indian and State Governments. 

As people of Hyderabad, we owe to honour Quli Qutub Shah for establishing this city. In this regard, we are starting this campaign to rename the International Airport of Hyderabad as "Quli Qutub Shah International Airport". 

The current name of Hyderabad Airport is "Rajiv Gandhi International Airport". The reason told by then party in power is that, Rajiv Gandhi took pilot training in Hyderabad. With all due respect to Shri. Late Rajiv Gandhi, just taking pilot training in Hyderabad doesn't qualify Hyderabad's Airport to be named after him. 

We urge Honourable Chief Minister of Telangana Shri. K. Chandrashekar Rao and Honourable Civil Aviation Minister of India Shri. Ashok Ganapathi Raju to look into this matter.  We also urge Honourable Member of Parliament from Hyderabad Constituency Shri. Asaduddin Owasi to raise this matter in Lok Sabha.
