Haryana Gram Panchayats propose to name sports stadiums after Bhagat Singh

Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Anil Vij told media about renaming of Gram Panchayats in Haryana. Anil Vij said: "Ninety per cent of the proposals received from panchayats in the state have recommended that sports stadia named after Rajiv Gandhi should be renamed after Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh and other martyrs."

It may be recalled that Bollywood veteran Rishi Kapoor kicked off a controversy by criticizing the Gandhi family for having named the major national assets after names of their family members.
