Change Dalhousie’s name

Some law students from HPU University have urged Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur to change the name of Dalhousie in Chamba to Netaji Subhas Nagar. The students feel that retaining the name of the town named after Lord Dalhousie, the Governor General of India, was a sign of mental slavery. Besides, they said it was an insult to the freedom fighters. The students said Dalhousie's cruelty against Indians was well documented.
