Former Union minister Rajeev Shukla has accused the Central government of selling the nation in the name of monetisation scheme and said if the BJP government is not stopped, it shall soon sell Jaipur's Hawa Mahal and Amer Fort too.

"They will sell the heritage of the country. The Central government had plans to pass on the Red Fort to a Kolkata-based company," Shukla said on Friday while addressing the media.

Questioning the Central government, Shukla said: "If you are unable to run the airport, railways, then why are you in the government? Such people should leave the government. The central government is selling the nation,"

Speaking on high fuel prices, he said: "The people of the country are irked with rising inflation. The prices of gas, petrol and diesel are increasing continuously. During UPA's tenure, crude was $120 per barrel, however, we used to sell gas, petrol and diesel at half the price (compared to the current price). Today, crude is between 60 and 70 but the central government is selling petrol and diesel at double the price while buying crude at half the price as compared to the UPA regime."
