New Delhi: Traders' body CAIT on Wednesday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to rename Rajpath in Delhi as "Atal Bihari Vajpayee Path" in remembrance of the former PM.

Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal in a letter to PM Modi also proposed that a tall statue of Vajpayee should be erected at Vijay Chowk near Parliament.

The former prime minister passed away here on August 16 after a prolonged illness.

Khandelwal suggested that the Golden Quadrilateral Highway Network should also be named as 'Atal Bihari Vajpayee Highway'.

"The Golden Quadrilateral Highway Network was the brainchild of Vajpayee to connect the entire country. If this project is named after him, it will be a true tribute to a person who saw the dream of connecting India with Highways," CAIT said.
