It will be ‘Digha’ railway station, not ‘Dighe’: Govt accepts locals’ demand

Pratap Mhatre, a resident, was confused about why the station was named Dighe when the area is known as Digha. “We have a Digha deity temple in the area, and hence it was important for us that it is named accordingly. We fail to understand why Dighe was chosen earlier,” he said

Speaking on the history of the name, former MP Sanjeev Naik, who had made the demand for the railway station in 2012 during his tenure as Thane MP, said that the residents and their representatives had demanded that the station be named after their village. They had even written a memorandum of the demand to the then guardian minister Ganesh Naik as the railway authorities named the station Dighe.” (Bachchan Kumar/ HT PHOTO)
