Criticizing the government over its decision on disinvestment of BPCL and other companies, the Congress on Thursday accused it of "selling the country".

The Cabinet on Wednesday approved a strategic divestment of the government's 53.29 percent stake in the BPCL, along with the transfer of certain management control. This is excluding BPCL's equity shareholding of 61 percent stake in Numaligarh Refinery.

"They did not create anything but will sell everything. This is called selling the country. If there is Modi, it is possible," tweeted Randeep Surjewala in Hindi.
