After 450 buildings, projects being named after Nehru-Gandhi dynasty, ‘liberals’ outrage about stadium named after PM Modi

President Ramnath Kovind today inaugurated Narendra Modi Stadium, world’s largest cricket stadium, at the Sardar Patel Sports Enclave in Motera, Gujarat. Soon, the Congress supporters and Congress-friendly ‘liberals’ had a massive meltdown which was coupled with spreading falsehoods and misleading information.

Congress social media cell was activated to claim that when Congress makes it back to power it will rename the stadium. What the Congressis did not get is that the stadium is named after PM Modi while the enclave, the entire complex which houses the stadium and various other sporting facilities is named Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Sports Enclave. Stadium is just a part of the bigger sports complex.

Swedish ‘professor’ and regular fake news peddler Ashok Swain, is back on Twitter after his ‘break‘, to continue spreading the hate.

He brought in the PM Modi vs Hitler analogy.

Abusive troll masquerading as journalist too chimed in.

A rather elaborate meltdown was happening.

Congress leader Hardik Patel, who has been credited for further pushing Congress into oblivion in Gujarat, too joined in.

Patel, too, seems unaware that the Sardar Patel Enclave houses the stadium and not the other way around.

More Congress supporters joined in. Which is quite amusing considering there are at least 450 projects, structures, roads, colleges, universities named after the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty.

A November 2013 RTI response had revealed that Nehru-Gandhi family names were used for 450 difference schemes, projects and institutions. 12 Central and 52 state schemes, 28 sports tournaments and trophies, 19 stadiums, 5 airports and ports, 98 educational institutions, 51 awards, 15 fellowships, 15 national sanctuaries and parks, 39 hospitals and medical institutions, 37 institutions, chairs and festivals and 74 roads, buildings and places are named after 3 members of the Nehru-Gandhi family: Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi.

There are also parks and zoos dedicated to Kamala Nehru who was Jawaharlal Nehru’s wife. She had died even before Indian independence and has never been a politician. There are parks, gardens, memorials, schools and hospital after Indira Gandhi’s younger son Sanjay Gandhi. Sanjay Gandhi was an MP for a period of only six months and was best known for the forced sterilisation drive during Emergency and Maruti scam.
