Please Stop Renaming of Roads

This petition had 5 supporters

Roads are regularly being renamed on names of relatives of rich people, who would be using their money power or influence on the decision makers sitting in the Corporation. There seems to be no procedure adopted for change of names nor is local citizens' forum consulted prior to adoption of new names. Private properties of people can bear their or their near ones' names but without spending anything for the road, how and why should these people be allowed to rename the public property. Now, with most people using Google Maps to navigate, the renaming will lead to more difficult situation as the new name may take its own time to come on the Google maps and if one is using old name for reaching the location then there will not be any signage when the person reaches there. 

So either the renaming be reversed or the family members of the person on whose name the road is renamed should be asked to perpetually maintain the road akin to public gardens or traffic islands. 

If renaming is necessary then only names of national or international personalities should be used.
