Meanwhile, Manish Sisodia confirmed the raids through his Twitter account, where he tweeted, “CBI has arrived, and I welcome their arrival. I will cooperate with the investigation so that the truth comes out at the earliest. So far, multiple cases have been filed against me, but nothing has come out, and nothing will come out either. No one can stop my work to revamp the education system in the country”.
