Veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor took to Twitter on Tuesday night to slam the concept of naming Indian properties after the Gandhi family and expressed his displeasure in a series of tweets.
Rishi Kapoor's outburst was following the proposal by Union Minister VK Singh to change the name of Delhi's Akbar Road to Maharana Pratap Road.
Rishi Kapoor pointed out that if names of roads in Delhi can be changed, why can't names of assets and properties named after Congress leaders be renamed.
Heres' what Rishi Kapoor tweeted:
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 ?— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) May 17, 2016
If roads in Delhi can be changed why not Congress assets/property ke naam? Was in Chandigarh wahan bhi Rajeev Gandhi assets? Socho? Why?— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) May 17, 2016
We must name important assets of the country who have contributed to society. Har cheez Gandhi ke naam? I don't agree. Sochna log!— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) May 17, 2016
Film City should be named Dilip Kumar,Dev Anand,Ashok Kumar ya Amitabh Bachchan ke naam? Rajeev Gandhi udyog Kya hota hai? Socho doston!— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) May 17, 2016
Imagine Mohamad Rafi Mukesh Manna Dey Kishore Kumar venues on their name like in our country. Just a suggestion— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) May 17, 2016
Why Indira G airport International ? Why not Mahatma Gandhi or Bhagat Singh Ambedkar or on my name Rishi Kapoor. As superficial! What say?— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) May 17, 2016
