Congress retorts, names public toilet after Rishi Kapoor

Lucknow, May 24 (IANS) Congress workers on Tuesday named a public toilet in Allahabad after Rishi Kapoor, apparently as a retort to the actor’s recent rant over the naming of many public institutions after Nehru-Gandhi family.

Some Congress workers, from the youth wing of the party, hung a poster, naming the Sulabh public toilet in the Shivaji Park area after the Bollywood film actor and inviting the people to use the public toilet more and more.

Last week, Rishi Kapoor in a series of tweets questioned why “har cheez” (everything) in the country is named after the Gandhis.

“Change Gandhi family assets named by Congress… Baap ka maal samjh rakha tha? (Do they consider it their father’s property?),” tweeted the 63-year-old actor.

“If roads in Delhi can be changed why not Congress assets/property ke naam? Was in Chandigarh wahan bhi Rajeev Gandhi assets? Socho? Why?” the veteran wrote.

“We must name important assets of the country who have contributed to society. Har cheez Gandhi ke naam? I don’t agree. Sochna log!” said another tweet by Rishi.

“Why Indira Gandhi airport International? Why not Mahatma Gandhi or Bhagat Singh Ambedkar or on my name Rishi Kapoor. As superficial! What say?” Kapoor tweeted.


  1. To be fair to Congress, these are just a handful of Congress workers from Allahabad engaging in idiotic stunts. We can’t blame entire party for the action of a few. However, there is no doubt that overwhelming majority of Congress workers are known for worshiping gandhis from Nehru family. In fact, even after latest round of defeats in state level elections, many senior most congress leaders want the top leadership to be with Nehru family!!!! This party is a modern day monarchy and its supporters represent a new kind of slave mindset (gulaaama / daasya) that is very depressing to watch!!!!

  2. Dear Paimaam, please stop shedding crocodile tears for Congress. Do not poke your nose in the internal matters of the Congress.

    Sir, please know what you write. If you think that many victories and many more defeats in democratically conducted elections by the Congress top leadership symbolises “modern day Monarchy” for you, it is better you stop posting your comments.

    You please think about the strangulation of democracy by the RSS, which decided who should be the prime ministerial candidate, who should be its president and what should be the programs and policies of the BJP. RSS has no internal democracy or elections and it has a fascist internal set up and it decides every thing about BJP. How then could the BJP be democratic?

    This is like Hitler singing the in praise of democracy!

  3. Congress has some highly educated and accomplished leaders in Abhishek Sanghvi, Manish Tiwari, Anand Sharma and others. Considering the situation in which Congress is today, it is high time that the educated lot with administrative acumen, come forward and take charge of Congress and run it as a democratic entity, with right man, handling the right job. You just cannot have stupid people leading the party to its doomsday, backed by chamchas, haan jees, including B.N. Pai because, in bad times, chamchas will have a harrowing time. If BJP is in power, it is thanks to Congress which was led by the Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi combine and with the toddler, Dr. Manmohan Singh, following them. There were people who were not fond of BJP, a religious or communal party and a tutleage of RSS, but went for the tall promises made by Narendra Modi, considering the scandals, scams and other irregularities under the UPA. Even today, many skeletons are falling off the cupboards in arms purchases, predominantly from Italian manufacturers, including Westland-Augusta.

    Cricket is a mania in India and there are people who get invited to various social events and gatherings, because they are lookalikes. They are exact replicas of Cricketers A, B, C, D, E …. and talk, behave, dress, walk like these stars. For them, it was all a smooth saying till everything went well, because they are paid, dined, toasted, loaded with freebies, etc. and fawned by cricket lovers. However, one tour was disastrous for the Indians and people were fuming, fretting and wanted to vent their rage. They went for the softer targets by catching hold of these lookalikes or duplicates and gave them a sound trashing, forcing them to go underground for a long, long time till things had cooled down and they could gingerly come up and feel their way. In short, sycophancy has its limits.
