It won't just be a new government taking oaths at the Wankhede stadium on Friday. Even the stadium's entrance gates shall bear a new name.
The BJP-led government has stumped the cricketing community with their decision to rename the entrances to the stadium, currently named after cricketing legends Vinoo Mankad and Polly Umrigar, after its own senior functionaries, for their special day.
While Mankad opened for India, Umrigar was a great middle-order batsman. CM-designate Devendra Fadnavis, along with his top cabinet ministers, will take oath on Friday. The ceremony is expected to be attended by PM Narendra Modi, party boss Amit Shah and other prominent leaders.
