The government has decided to involve the Dalmia Bharat Group in the maintenance of the Red Fort. A memorandum of understanding was signed between the Dalmia Group and the tourism ministry stating the Group would maintain the Red Fort and build basic infrastructure around it along with a commitment of Rs 25 crores for the same purpose. This will be done over a period of 5 years in agreement with the tourism ministry under its “adopt a heritage” project. But the Opposition is not happy. It has questioned the government’s move to allow a private entity to maintain the symbol of India’s freedom struggle. Twitter was buzzing with comments and memes about this.
