    Rishi Kapoor: Why is every national asset named after the Gandhis?


    NEW DELHI: Veteran film actor Rishi Kapoor on Wednesday took to Twitter to launch a scathing attack on the Gandhi family and demanded that national assets named after them should be renamed.

    "Change Gandhi family assets named by the Congress. Bandra/Worli Sea Link to Lata Mangeshkar or JRD Tata link road. Baap ka maal samjh rakha tha?," Rishi Kapoor said in a series of tweets.

    "We must name important assets of the country after those who have contributed to society. Why every asset is named after the Gandhis? I don't agree," said the veteran actor.

    "If roads in Delhi can be changed why not the name of Congress assets/property? I was in Chandigarh recently, there also I saw assets named after Rajiv Gandhi. Think. Why?" questioned the actor in another tweet.

    Change Gandhi family assets named by Congress.Bandra/Worli Sea Link to Lata Mangeshkar or JRD Tata link road. Baap ka maal samjh rakha tha ?

    "Raj Kapoor has made India proud all over the world for years, even after his death. Certainly more than What has been perceived by the politics," he said.

    Taking a jibe at the Gandhis, Rishi Kapoor tweeted, "Why Indira Gandhi International Airport? Why not Mahatma Gandhi or Bhagat Singh Ambedkar or on my name Rishi Kapoor. As superficial! What say?" "Imagine Mohamad Rafi, Mukesh, Manna Dey, Kishore Kumar venues on their name like in our country. Just a suggestion," he said.

    Film City should be named after Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Ashok Kumar or Amitabh Bachchan. Why Rajiv Gandhi udyog? Think friends, the veteran actor said. Why Indira G airport International ? Why not Mahatma Gandhi or Bhagat Singh Ambedkar or on my name Rishi Kapoor. As superficial! What say?

    Anupam Kher, backs Rishi Kapoor's views on renaming India's assets.Raza Murad backs Rishi Kapoor, asks why all airports after politicians.

    In my opinion GOI should formulate law prohibiting naming more than one monument or street to honour the politicians. It is a new phenomena in our country that Indian movie stars are speaking out on social or political issues. I think it is a positive move and speaks volume about the democracy in India.

    should the nation differentiate between Gandhi-j and the Nehru descendants who have "illegally" hijacked his name ?

    secondly how "indian" are many of these Nehru-descendants ?

    i would like to start a poll of whether the nation should demand that these Nehru-descendants be prohibited from using the Gandhi name and revert to their more correct surname which is ..... ,errr shall we say something to the effect of Antonio Quattoci Nehru ? in other words , AQ Nehru ( hmmmmmm sounds like AQ Khan doesnt it ?)

    Out from Delhi, Aurangzeb still lends name to places across India
    • HT Correspondent, Hindustan Times, New Delhi
    • Updated: Sep 09, 2015 11:31 IST
    The Delhi government has decided to rename the Aurangzeb Road in the heart of the national capital after APJ Abdul Kalam to honour the former President. (Arun Sharma/HT Photo)

    Aurangzeb continues to lend his name to many locations across the country, despite being unceremoniously shown the door from a prominent Delhi address.

    Several cities, villages, markets and localities still bear the Mughal emperor’s name even as the municipal authorities of Delhi changed the name of capital’s Aurangzeb Road to APJ Abdul Kalam Road, triggering a fierce debate over the former monarch’s place in history. Some say he was a tyrant and needs to be erased from history. Others say he should be left untouched as history is sacrosanct.

    No such dilemmas though for either Aurangabad district in western Bihar bordering Jharkhand or its main town Aurangabad. The sleepy town dotted with old buildings and tardy development straddling National Highway 2 is at ease with its ties to Mughal past.

    “It hardly matters what they call it. What matters is if the fortunes of Aurangabad and its people will change,” points out Suman Kumar, a college-going student. Md. Mahmood Alam, the president of the local Rotary Club, agrees, saying since the name of Aurangzeb has been associated with the place for long, it should stay that way. Changing it could hurt the sentiments of some sections, he says.

    History has it that Daud Khan Qureshi, a subedar of Aurangzeb and governor of Rohtas, had named the city after the Mughal emperor.

    Uttar Pradesh has several places shouldering the legacy of the Mughal emperor, including Aurangabad in Bulandshahr district, and Aurangabad Khalsa and Aurangabad Jageer – two small localities in the capital Lucknow.

    Emboldened by the change in the name of Aurangzeb Road, a group of locals led by BJP corporator Ramesh Kapoor ‘Baba’ has demanded that the names of the Lucknow colonies be changed. “It is my personal view that any place associated with tyrants and cruel despots should be changed,” he says. However, long-time residents Kamla Yadav and her husband Thakur Prasad, say the names never bothered the locals. It is their home and they love it, they say.
    Some historians, however, say the two Lucknow localities are “untainted” by the Mughal emperor. Aurangabad means one who adds reputation to the throne, not the king himself, says Yogesh Praveen.

    The BJP-led government in Maharashtra has no such doubts about the origin of the name of its own Aurangabad – a city best known for nearby tourist attractions like Ajanta and Ellora -- and is pushing to change the name of the city to Sambhaji Nagar after Shivaji’s eldest son. Though banished from a Delhi road, Aurangzeb’s name is unlikely to vanish from public discourse in a hurry.

    Double tag. Thanks!

    I agree with Rishi Kapoor. There are too many Gandhi family stuff around.

    I will make an exception with Indira Gandhi. She is the most successful Indian leader in the history of independent India.

    One who has never studied politics in deep, has no clear political thought, such person's thoughts often oscillate like pendulam, one of them is Rishi Kapoor though he is right this time.
