Indira, Rajiv and nobody else

Yet another monument or construction in the name of Rajiv Gandhi! I am talking about the new Bandra-Worli sea link. I hate this one thing about Congress. They behave as if there is no other person alive or dead worthy of recognition and honour in the history of pre-independent and post-independent India apart from their 'family' leaders Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. Lousy self proclamation, indeed.

Rajiv Gruh Nirman, Rajiv Gandhi International airport, Indiramma gruha patakam (housing schemes in A.P.) etc. The ruling Congress party always does that. They name everything from poor people housing schemes to free ration to international airports to monuments.. everything under the sun in the name of either Indira Gandhi or Rajiv Gandhi! If they don't want to use names of prominent leaders who served from other political parties, let them not. But, at least look into your backyard. There are the likes of P.V.Narasimha Rao who certainly have some outstanding contribution to their credit. Go, get a life!
