Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Wednesday shared a picture of defunct 108 and 102 Ambulances slamming Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh government.
Singh took to Twitter and shared a photo of several ambulances parked in what appears to be a junkyard and wrote a caption alongside stating that these were started by former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav.
Singh further wrote that since the ambulances are out of use people of Uttar Pradesh are forced to carry their unwell relatives on make-shift stretchers. Using a couple of hashtags, the former Madhya Pradesh chief minister also attempted to shame Yogi Adityanath’s government.
ये उत्तर प्रदेश की हालत क्या कर दी योगी जी ने, अखिलेश यादव जी द्वारा चलवाई गई 108,102 एम्बूलेंस खड़ी जंग खा रही है और जनता अपने बीमार परिजनों को ठेलो पर अस्पताल ले जा रही है॥

At the time of filing of this report, the tweet had got over 350 retweets.
Following Digvijay’s tweet, a Facebook page I am with Ravish Kumar had also shared the same picture with the same claims.
Twitter followers had a field day after he wrongly shared images of seemingly defunct 108 and 102 Ambulances from Andhra Pradesh to shame the Uttar Pradesh government.
When NewsMobile fact-checked the picture tweeted by Digvijay Singh, we found out that the picture is real but senior Congress leader forgot to check the origin of the picture before slamming the UP-government.
When we closely observed the picture we found out that image is not from UP as claimed by Digvijaya Singh but from Andhra Pradesh.
However, Singh seemed to have overlooked the fact that the ambulances bore stickers of Andhra Pradesh government and were inscribed with text in Telugu.
