Congress makes it ,so those things are named after nehru family members ,surprisingly they don't use name's of other well known freedom fighters of congress.

Those who have not contributed anything much during their life time will get forgotten in due course of time. So to ensure at least their name is remembered, monuments and structures are erected and named after them. Real leaders like Gandhi, Nehru, Patel, Nataji (i mean Subash Chandra and not Mullayam :) Indra etc do not need structures with their name for them to be remembered. Their contribution to society will speak for itself. But leaders like Rajiv, Maya, Karuna, Lalu etc whose contributions are only in the form of scams, do not leave behind anything for the future generation to remember them. Even their scams gets buried or burnt with their bones by our great undertaker of scams - the CBI. So structures like Bndra - Worli sea link gets named after Rajiv because it got inaugurated when chamchas of Nehru dynasty were governing at the time of the structures Namkaran ceremony took place.
