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.
