During the debate, the anchor asked the BJP leader, “What is the evidence that Piyush Jain is related to Samajwadi Party”? The BJP leader replied, “Our top leaders of the party have evidence only then they are making allegations.” The anchor then asked, “No links have been told by the investigating agency with the Samajwadi Party but your party leaders have found links of perfume trader with Samajwadi Party.”
The anchor said furiously, “If there is any relation of perfume trader with Akhilesh Yadav, then put him in jail.” On this the BJP leader said, “We are investigating.” Meanwhile, the anchor interrupted, “When the investigation is still going on then why are your leaders saying this in rallies?” To this BJP leader said, “When the investigation is on, things are not told publicly.” The anchor replies, “Tell this to your leader Yogi Adityanath.”
A clip of the debate is going viral on social media. Taking a sly on the anchor Twitter user @roflgandhi_ wrote, “It is confirmed that the money seized belonged to Jain(Piyush) of BJP and hence he(Sushant Sinha) did not get salary.”
