      Let Robert/ Rahul pay the royalties and advertisement fees from atleast now onwards. I m sure the chrages would run into many lac crores per annum. They have amassed huge money in their various trusts without earning …let it get emptied a little bit. Else romove the names and let it be in proportion to the contributions made by freedom fighters.

    Will be nice if govt does a Ctrl+E – Search and replace and rename everything to people who really deserve. But super effort sir in compiling this list.

      There is a Sanjay Gandhi hospital in Bengaluru South (for accident cases )

    GH Chennai became the Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital during DMK rule. I still remember this was done when the DMK was on a sticky wicket in its relationship to the congress.

  4. Nikhilesh Nadkarni · · Reply

    you forgot to mention Rajiv Gandhi Bandra-Worli Sea link

  5. Just excellent sir. We all know that almost all the schemes are on fake gandhi name but at least some body compiled it. Thanks

  6. Voux Populi · · Reply

    Let all these schemes be financed by Sonia Gandhi to retain the titles… if not, let all the names be changed immediately and recognised with the program name, devoid of any individual’s name.

  7. That’s a very useful list. Thanks.

    If you were to add the roads named after them in various cities and towns, the list will expand from 400 to around a few thousand.

    Now I think there won’t be any chance of putting the gandhi family name for any institutions.

    Wow, the perfect clan dynasty!

  13. Folks, just wait for few years – if congress comes back to power, it will start naming schemes, roads, airports with the prefix, Robert Vadra!!!

  14. OMG, India is Nehru-gandhi family, Nehru-gandhi family is India.

    A heart-breaking and scandalous arrogation in christening that is beyond words! What an affront to the memory of the really great who remain unsung to this day. Congress has proved itself to be the most despicably self-centered political party ever probably in the world history itself!

    This list is incomplete .
    Every city in India has a Road named after one of the members of this family .
    Most of the cities have a township or a locality bearing such names .
    Bridges like Indira Gandhi Bridge to Rameshwaram and Jawahar Setu on Sone river at Dehri-on-Sone .
    Tunnel Jawahar Tunnel at Banihal ( JK )
    Gardens – Kamla Nehru Garden Malabar Hill Mumbai .
    Motilal Nehru Engineering College Allahabad .etc .
    The list will be endless .

    Reason why reduced to 44.seats…on way to 4 with increased literacy & awareness. Don’t change the names….for people to see the gross injustice done to them out of public exchequer…….else their seat would start rising. Wait for another 10- 15 years seats would definitely be 4 or less.

  22. Don’t be heartless and jealous, be thankful Bharat Ratna remains unchanged, no state is named after Nehru and most importantly the nation’s name has not been changed as Indira.

    Every Indian knows, understands and feels proud after more than six decades a great leader with correct priorities is leading the country to its glory.

    But unfortunately the main stream media, MSMs as they are referred to, do not understand this welcome change because some of these MSMs were the creation of that family owned party and the rest of most of these MSMs are used to getting and continue to get favors from that family owned business called a political party, and unfortunately, for a longtime by extension the government of India.

    So they are tasked with assigning certain labels to some people and groups like ‘autocratic, saffron , communal’ etc and appropriate certain labels to some like ‘youth icon’ when most of the time they do not have a clue as to where he has gone, even from ‘our sources it is reliable learnt’ version.

    What is more upsetting is some seniors within the party and outside with organizations with national interest as a core ideology or principle instead of gracefully retiring from active participation and lend support through suggestions to those who are running the show as ministers, run to these very same MSMs and feed them with fodder by criticizing the functioning of some ministers, questioning certain policies etc. Dear senior by all means you have all the right and you may use your personal rapport and good offices to directly communicate your suggestions to the concerned ministers personally.

    Destiny weaves its own patterns and scheme of things only at certain times and at such times if we are not in the thick of activities for any reason, including age and non acceptance by certain forces, then it would be wise to stay away than cause trouble to a team which has embarked with good intentions, great motivations with a grand vision.

    Present government wants to put relevant institutions in place, prioritize economic, social and overall development of the nation and all its citizens. It cannot be expected to spend its energy, time and mind space trying to please some of its own seniors on every issue.

    What is surprising is some of these very seniors were passive spectators in the past ten years and never questioned the creation of a supra constitutional body called NAC which was the screen behind which deals took place while the parliament kept silent, silence was too deafening from everyone, not only MMS.

    It is also important to remember that those who have faced the looters almost on a daily basis in parliament as leaders of opposition, representing BJP during those ten years cannot be ignored and similarly we cannot ignore those who were boldly taking on the media during those ten years.

    So, keep digging and questioning every day all the misdeeds of the past 60 years by all means but do not disturb a good government which is providing governance for a change.

  23. This is just mind blowing and boggling at the same time !! Feels sad to know how other freedom fighters are sidelined or even erased from public memory and restricted to history books (if anyone reads them)!

    Add Nehru stadium in Chennai & Rajiv Gandhi Hospital (GH renamed) also in Chennai to the list.

  25. How about naming my beloved country as ‘Rahul’s Creche’?

  26. And people took the Congress President Late Deva Kanta Barooah lightly when he quipped ‘India is Indira and Indira is India”! Grow up maan!! We are in Indira’s India which is slowly moving towards being named “Rahul’s Creche”!

  27. Fantastic job Prof.

  28. First gandhi name must be changed as khan.(husband of indra)
