Mumbai After winning the T20 World Cup, the entire India along with Indian cricket is very happy. On this occasion, Team India also took out a victory parade on Marine Drive in Mumbai, but now a controversy has arisen over it. In fact, opposition parties have targeted the team for not selecting the 'BEST' bus in the procession.

State Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant said, “A BEST (Brihanmumbai Electricity Supply and Transport) bus was used in the victory procession of the Indian team that won the T20 World Cup in 2007. Today, a bus was brought from Gujarat for the event. Is this not an insult to Maharashtra? Or does it mean that quality buses are not manufactured in Mumbai? Why is the chief minister silent?”

He accused former Mumbai Cricket Association president and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) city unit chief Ashish Shelar of choosing the Gujarat bus over the BEST bus. Nationalist Congress Party-Sharadchandra Pawar (NCP) MLA Rohit Pawar said the BEST bus should have been used for the Vijay Yatra. “We are emotionally attached to the BEST buses,” he said.

Reacting to the allegations, senior BJP state unit leader Sudhir Mungantiwar said, “The team that won the World Cup is the Indian team, not the Mumbai or Gujarat team. Those making such divisive comments should remember this.” The bus, manufactured by Eicher and owned by Gujarat-based Moving Cart Entertainment, was registered by the Gandhinagar RTO in March 2020.

The bus owner told PTI that the double-decker, open-decker bus is usually parked in Mumbai and was not brought from Gujarat specifically for the event.
