New Delhi, April 28: As Dalmia Bharat Group won a bid to ‘Adopt’ Red Fort, the Congress on Saturday hit out at Narendra Modi government asking which monuments the saffron party would “lease out to a private entity” next.

The party posted a poll on Twitter, After handing over the Red Fort to the Dalmia group, which is the next distinguished location that the BJP government will lease out to a private entity? Weather the Parliament, Lok Kalyan Marg or Supreme Court.

The 77-year-old Dalmia Bharat group has a historic bid to adopt the 17th century Red Fort, built by India’s fifth Mughal ruler Shah Jahan, for a period of five years, at a cost of Rs 25 crore.

Earlier this week on April 24, the Dalima Bharat Limited signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Ministry of Tourism for adoption of Red Fort monument under the ‘Adopt a Heritage’ project, making it the first corporate house to adopt the iconic monument.

The company will now be responsible for maintaining and revamping the Mughal era monument.

The BJP-led Centre’s move has also been questioned by author and historian William Dalrymple.

The ‘Adopt a Heritage’ (Apni Dharohar Apni Pehchan Project) scheme was inaugurated by President Ram Nath Kovind on September 17 last year, following which various companies volunteered to adopt the monument.
