Yadav is the Congress MLA from the Kotputli constituency, and all his family members own businesses such as manufacturing bags for fertilisers, grains, and cement.

“It is our ancestral business,” said the minister. He even said, “My father was in the business from 1950-52, I have been doing it before I entered into politics and both of my sons are also engaged in the business. We are into the production line and supply materials to companies. This should not be associated with things like political funding.”

Meanwhile, the minister of state for home released a statement, “The Income Tax department is conducting raids at business premises and residences in Kotputli and Uttarakhand. Reasons are not known.” It seems that the IT department is chasing a lead and have received some information from their sources.

According to Yadav, the random raids are occurring with the permission of the Central government, “When we asked them (officers), they said that the search has to be done, the (Central) government has sent them,” said the MLA.
