Offended by Rishi Kapoor’s comments against the Gandhi family, Congress workers on Wednesday staged a protest outside the actor's Bandra house.

The workers pelted stones and shouted slogans protesting against the actor’s tweets questioning naming of national assets after the Gandhi family.

Late last night Kapoor lashed out at the Congress party, particularly at the Gandhi family, for naming national assets after its family members.

'Baap ka maal samajh rakha tha kya?' Kapoor had tweeted.

Kapoor insisted that Gandhi family assets named by Congress should be changed.

"He seems to have forgotten his legendary father Raj Kapoor's association with former PM Indira Gandhi. Mahatma Gandhi, Indira and Rajiv Gandhi have laid down their lives for the nation so there is nothing wrong is naming assets after them," NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik said, according to PTI.

The NCP too took strong objection to Kapoor's tweets on naming major assets after the Gandhi family.

"The Kapoor brothers have amassed large fortune over the years and if Rishi Kapoor wants an asset in his father's name, the family should spend some money for the welfare of people," he added.
