    None of them deserves it.Only reason they are getting these attention because they were assassinated.It was a tragedy,but UPA Govt spending tax payers money to keep us remembering the sacrifice of Gandhi family and exploiting our feelings for vote bank politics.It is emotional blackmailing and it is wrong.

    Congress peoples wealth were used to print materials, pamphlets, Holding meetings to create awareness abt Freedom struggle..The people of india knows lot about there contribution.. if were there no rajiv or indhira we would be sitting like our neighbor pakistan who doen't think much beyond there religion... They shaped the country well created schools,colleges and gave importance to knowledge...People are not fools to elect a particular party...
