Enraged over the comments of actor Rishi Kapoor questioning the naming of country’s assets after the Gandhi family, Congress workers named a public toilet in Allahabad after him. While the naming is not official, dozens of Congress workers gathered in Shivaji Park area of Allahabad and hung a board bearing Rishi Kapoor’s name outside a Sulabh Shauchalya.
In his comments posted on Twitter last week, he wrote:
“Why Indira G airport International? Why not Mahatma Gandhi or Bhagat Singh Ambedkar or on my name Rishi Kapoor. As superficial! What say?”
“We must name important assets of the country who have contributed to society. Har cheez Gandhi ke naam? I don’t agree. Sochna log!”
Therefore, these controversial comments had invited a massive protest by Congress workers outside his house in Mumbai last week.
