The workers pelted stones and shouted slogans protesting against the actor’s tweets questioning naming of national assets after the Gandhi family.
Late last night Kapoor lashed out at the Congress party, particularly at the Gandhi family, for naming national assets after its family members.:
Here’s the series of tweets:
Rishi Kapoor ✔ @chintskap:
- 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 ?
- If roads in Delhi can be changed why not Congress assets/property ke naam? Was in Chandigarh wahan bhi Rajeev Gandhi assets? Socho? Why?
- We must name important assets of the country who have contributed to society. Har cheez Gandhi ke naam? I don’t agree. Sochna log!
- Film City should be named Dilip Kumar,Dev Anand,Ashok Kumar ya Amitabh Bachchan ke naam? Rajeev Gandhi udyog Kya hota hai? Socho doston!
- Imagine Mohamad Rafi Mukesh Manna Dey Kishore Kumar venues on their name like in our country. Just a suggestion.
- Why Indira G airport International ? Why not Mahatma Gandhi or Bhagat Singh Ambedkar or on my name Rishi Kapoor. As superficial! What say?
- Thank you, thank you world over! Your reaction coming is unprecedented. I meant it from my heart and you know. Thank you all for your unprecedented unconditional support,love and solidarity for what I said. Mera Bharat Mahaan!
- THINK. There are 64 prominent places named after them only in New Delhi! Do you need that many to commemorate
