IS THIS COUNTRY MORTGAGED TO ONE FAMILY THAT ALL PUBLIC PROPERTY HAS TO BE STAMPED WITH THEIR NAME?

When a govt. constructs a road or builds a bridge they donot pay for it from their pocket. It is public's hard-earned tax money that goes for it. Then why naming so many national properties after the members of only one family? Why the sea-link is called Rajiv Gandhi bridge?

Why the sea-link is called Rajiv Gandhi bridge?

It should be called Veer Savarkar bridge.

This is Savarkar's resume:
The first political leader to daringly set Absolute Political Independence as India's goal (1900).
The first Indian political leader to daringly perform a bonfire of foreign (English) clothes (1905).
The first Indian to organize a revolutionary movement for India's Independence on an international level (1906).
The first political prisoner whose daring escape and arrest on French soil became a cause celebre in the International Court of Justice at The Hague. This case was mentioned in many International Treaties at that time (1910).
The first Indian leader who successfully started -
A Ganeshotsava open to all Hindus including ex-untouchables (1930).
Interdining ceremonies of all Hindus including ex-untouchables (1931).
"Patitpavan Mandir", open to all Hindus including ex-untouchables (22 February 1931).
A cafe open to all Hindus including ex-untouchables (01 May 1933).
The first political prisoner in the world who was sentenced to Transportation for Life twice, a sentence unparalled in the history of the British Empire.
The first political leader to embrace death voluntarily by way of Atma Samarpan in the highest tradition of Yoga (1966).

Whereas Rajiv Gandhi was a politician who has been charged with corruption cases of the highest kind.
These charges were levelled by his own Finance Minister.
Rajiv Gandhi lost an election and when he died he was not a PM.
Rajiv Gandhi's disastrous Srilanka policy was the reason behind his death. He cant be called a martyr.
His wrong foreign policy cost lives of many Indian soldiers in Srilanka whose death wass much more loss to the nation than Rajiv Gandhi's death.

Rajiv Gandhi moved away from Congressi socialism and started open economy, A MOVE WHICH WAS PROPAGATED BY DR. SHYAMA PRASAD MUKHERJEE WAY BACK IN 1948.

So whose contribution to the nation is more?

Apart from the fact that Rajiv Gandhi already has many things & awards named after him?

RAISE YOUR VOICE. GIVE JUSTICE TO TRUE HEROES.
Update: http://www.savarkar.org/en/veer-savarkar
Update 2: @ VIGNA, & V, why not ? Any true hero who has been neglected will do.
Update 3: EDIT : @ ap, It is great to know that you donot consider Savarkar a hero who was a freedom fighter but value Rajiv Gandhi's contributions whose 5 years of prime ministerial tenure was scandalised by the Bofors arms deal scam.
Update 4: EDIT : @ LAY, yes, right that the bridge will be called Savarkar bridge was almost finalised by Pawar until he realised that he needs Congress & Sonia Gandhi to stay in power.
