Heritage Garden, a popular garden in Hiranandani, Powai has been newly inaugurated as the Atal Bihari Vajpayee . The inauguration of the newly rechristened garden took place on December 25, 2019 on the occasion of the late Prime Ministers birthday, and Christmas’s. The inaugural ceremony was felicitated by the BMC and the local Corporater of Ward 122 Vaishali Patil and nominated corporator Shrinivas Tripathi along with the President of the Uttar Bhartiya Yuva Morcha Sanjay Singh.
The garden until yesterday’s inauguration was only informally named, after the Heritage building, which falls just adjacent to the garden, so it was decided by the local officials to give the garden a formal name. Speaking to Powai info journalist about the rationale behind naming it after the legendary statesman, Ward 122 Corporater Vaishali Patil said,
“Vajpayee was a legendary statesman, and that is why felt that we should name this beautiful garden in his honour. The ground work for the formal naming procedure had been going on for quite some while now, however met a few speed breakers on the way, most recently we were forced to shift our energies to the recently concluded elections, following the elections we were brainstorming the right time to formalise the inaugural ceremony and unanimously decided that we shall open it on Vajpayee ji’s birthday, and that we did!”
