Amidst all this, a different kind of debate is going on social media. Many people are claiming that the raid happened at Piyush Jain’s place by mistake, this is because the raid was to be held at the place of Samajwadi Party leader Pushpraj Jain alias Pumpi, but the BJP mistakenly got its own worker Piyush Jain raided, claimed by social media users.

In this episode, a tweet of News-24 with its the news breaking plate going viral on some media. It is written in this tweet- “Akhilesh Yadav ji NEWS 24 inadvertently made a mistake, we tarnished your image at the behest of BJP, for which our channel apologizes to you.” At the same time, the text wrote on breaking news plate is- “Piyush Jain, a member of BJP with 150 crores”.
