'Time for struggle not celebration': AAP MP Sanjay Singh out of Tihar Jail after 6 months


Aam Aadmi Party Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh walked out of Delhi's Tihar Jail on Wednesday evening, a day after being granted bail in the liquor scam case.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday granted bail to Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh in a money laundering case related to the Delhi Excise Policy scam after the Enforcement Directorate said it had no objection. On Tuesday, Singh was admitted to the hospital due to a liver problem and was discharged today.

Addressing his supporters outside Tihar Jail, the AAP leader said, “It's not time to celebrate, it's time to celebrate… Our senior party leaders Arvind Kejriwal, Satyendra Jain and Manish Sisodia have been put behind bars. Going. I'm sure the prison locks will break and get out.”

After his release, Singh also went to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence to meet his wife Sunita Kejriwal. The Delhi Chief Minister is now lodged in Tihar Jail in connection with the now-defunct excise policy case.

The AAP leader's father Dinesh Singh described his son's release from jail as a “special moment”. “I, my family, party workers and the party see this as a special moment…,” he said.

Sanjay Singh added that AAP was born out of a movement and it is not afraid of anyone. Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Satyendra Jain sent to jail, why? What is their crime? Their crime is that they want to give good education to 2 crore people of Delhi, send elderly people on pilgrimage, give free water. Your every worker, every leader, every minister and MLA stands with their leader Arvind Kejriwal.

We will not celebrate until they are released, we will continue the struggle…”

AAP leader Jasmin Shah said that Singh's release proves that there is no money trail in the case as alleged by the ED.

“Sanjay Singh is AAP's lion…BJP put him behind bars in a false case and no money trail was found. Supreme Court said it is a false case and plan to destroy AAP. Sanjay Singh Ka's release proves that there is no money trail… the struggle will continue…,” he said.
