Stupids who were responsible for renaming bombay, calcutta, chennai have to be blamed first. It's all bcoz of those bstards, which made people to think 'why not we rename our city too'.
I bet they wouldn't hv thought about the name if the city wasn't developed this far. Why cant the rename mangalore to mengaluru? If they are so concerned about city names, let them rename every place in karnataka (or even whole india).
I think the CM should also have local significant name. Dharam reddy or Dharam byregowda.
Let it be called as Bengaluru in their language, but wish english pronounciation remains the same as Bangalore.
Bengaloor was the original name, but still in english we called Bangalore.
Just like Dhilli how they call in hindi and it's spelled Delhi in eng.
