Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday targeted the Narendra Modi government over the statement of Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman associated with the sale of Air India and BPCL and accused this government of hollowing out the best government undertakings. She is working to sell them. Priyanka tweeted, citing a media report, "Where the gold bird roosts on the wall, it is India. Our institutions are our pride. These are our 'gold birds'. "Priyanka claimed," The BJP had promised to build the country, but the work is hollowing out India's best institutions and selling them. This is sad. "
Significantly, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said on Saturday that the government will complete the process of selling the country's state-run airline Air India and oil marketing company Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd by March 2020. The government expects to bring in Rs 1 lakh crore to the exchequer this financial year by selling these two companies.
