Turkey's largest city Istanbul has resolved to change the names of almost 200 streets in a mass renaming campaign, largely to remove any association with the alleged mastermind of the 2016 failed coup Fethullah Gulen, a report said Thursday.Another 25 smaller streets called Gulen Street will also have their names changed to remember themes and heroes who emerged from the attempted coup.Gulen is a common name in Turkey and the streets were likely over the years named after other people with this name.Any road with the name associated with a former media interest of Gulen is also changing its name.The campaign is not just aimed at names associated with Gulen.
