The Congress party issued a list of vehicle numbers on Tuesday morning after Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh Government accepted a proposal by party’s leader Priyanka Gandhi to offer 1000 buses for helping migrant labourers. But now it has turned out that many of the vehicle numbers sent by the Congress to UP government don’t belong to buses at all, but to small automobiles such as Auto-rickshaws, scooters and cars. Some allegedly even belong to blacklisted vehicles.
“In the preliminary checking of the numbers, it has been found that the numbers mentioned in the list as that of buses are actually of scooters, three-wheelers and goods carriers,” state Minister Sidharth Nath Singh said.
Meanwhile, #PriyankaVadraBusGhotala started trending on twitter with the users of the micro-blogging site taking digs at the Grand Old Party for making a mockery out of themselves by sending list of auto-rickshaws and scooters after offering buses.

During a TV interview on Monday, when asked about the buses offered by Congress, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had said, that he had been asking the Congress party for details on buses list for the past three days but did not get any information.
The Congress is yet to come up with an explanation on why the list of buses issued by them also include auto-rickshaws, scooters, cars, ambulances, goods carriers and blacklisted vehicles among others.
