Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday praised Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for taking steps to name a forest reserve after Guru Nanak Dev but hit out at the Centre saying its "top priority" seems to be renaming ancient cities and building Ram temple in Ayodhya.

Taking to Twitter, Mufti wrote, "How times change. Centre's top priority is seemingly renaming historic cities and building Ram Mandir. On the other hand, heartening to see that Pak PM has initiated steps to name Baloki forest reserve after Guru Nanak Ji and create a university under his name".

Mufti statement came moments after PTI leader Imran Khan announced his decision to name the wildlife reserve after Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of Sikhism.

"The Baloki Forest Reserve and a new University in Nankana Sahib will be established and named after Baba Guru Nanak. Pakistan belongs to all citizens equally and we will ensure that Sikh pilgrims are facilitated for the 550th anniversary of Guru Nanak," Khan said at a function.
