Locknow: An FIR was registered by the Uttar Pradesh Police against Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's personal secretary Sandeep Singh and UP Congress president Ajay Kumar Lallu in Hazratganj Police station of Lucknow on Tuesday, 19 May alleging fraud and forgery for furnishing wrong details about the buses arranged by the Congress to carry migrant workers to their destination.

The state government had stated earlier in the day that registration numbers of close to 200 out of the 1,074 buses arranged by the party were found to be of scooters, goods carriers and ambulances.

“As per MHA guidelines you need to apply for permission for inter-state bus movement after which pass is issued and permission is granted. They hadn't applied and didn't have pass. So they were not allowed to enter. He (Lallu) hasn't been arrested,” Ravi Kumar, SP rural (west), Agra, told the media.

The issue of UP government allegedly not allowing the buses arranged by the party for migrant labourers to enter the state has led to a tug of war between the Yogi government and Priyanka Gandhi since the past few days, with a marathon exchange of letters taking place in the past 24 hours. 

Earlier, Lallu, along with several Congress workers staged a protest staged a sit-in protest at Agra(UP)-Rajasthan border in Uncha Nangla after the buses arranged to bring back migrant workers from Rajasthan to UP were allegedly not allowed to enter UP. The protesters were later removed from the spot.
