The Yogi Adityanath led UP government has been in a tussle with Congress party after its leader Priyanka Gandhi offered the help of 1000 buses to transport the devastated migrant workers at the border of the state. Yogi government accepted the offer after Priyanka’s insistence on buses being ready at the border of the state. However, the UP government also asked Priyanka Gandhi’s office for the details of 1000 buses, with bus numbers and name of their drivers.
Yogi government yesterday accused the Congress party of “scam” saying that many numbers given in the list of buses by Priyanka’s office belong to two-wheelers and small vehicles.
After the Congress Unit Chief was picked by UP police, the official Twitter page of the party posted the video of him being towed by police. Congress said, “UP BJP government and CM Ajay Singh Bisht have crossed all the limits of their egos. Arresting UP Congress chief will not break our resolve. Listen carefully, the labourers will go back to their homes.”
Priyanka Gandhi, while responding to the UP government’s allegations of only 879 buses found out of 1049 numbers given by her party, said, “Uttar Pradesh government has itself given a statement that out of our 1049 buses, they have found 879 to be right. Your administration has stopped more than 500 buses of ours at Uncha Nagla border for hours. There are more than 300 buses waiting here at the Delhi border. Let at least these 879 buses function.”
