Allahabad:� Bollywood veteran tweeted questioning naming of properties after Gandhis, some Congress workers on Monday hung a placard with his name on a public toilet in Uttar Pradesh's Allahabad.

riProtesters said that the naming of the Gandhi family is justified as the country prospered after achieving freedom due to them.

Kapoor had taken to Twitter on May 17 and questioned the christening of important places after Gandhi family members.

He said that such important places should be named after Bollywood actors and sport heroes.

Last week, Rishi Kapoor, took to twitter to question why "har cheez" (everything) in the country is named after the Gandhis.

"Baap ka maal samjh rakha tha? (Do they consider it their father's property?)" tweeted the 63-year-old actor, once known as one of India's best romantic stars.

"If roads in Delhi can be changed why not Congress assets/property ke naam?" he asked.

"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 Kapoor, whose scathing and often self-deprecating tweets have earned him over a million Twitter followers.

"Why Indira Gandhi airport International? Why not Mahatma Gandhi or Bhagat Singh Ambedkar or on my name Rishi Kapoor.

As superficial! What say?" Kapoor said as he posted a series of questions.

Kapoor's comments had invited a massive protest by Congress workers outside his house in Mumbai last week.
