AAP MP Sanjay Singh walks out of Tihar jail after getting bail in excise policy case: 'Sangharsh ka waqt hai...'

AAP leader Sanjay Singh walked out of Tihar jail on Wednesday evening after getting bail in the excise policy case. The Rajya Sabha MP was granted bail by the Supreme Court earlier this week after the ED chose not to oppose his plea. The development also comes mere days after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was sent to Tihar jail under judicial custody.  

Jashn manane ka waqt nahi aya hai, sangharsh ka waqt hai (It is not yet time to celebrate…this is the time for struggle). Our party's senior leaders Arvind Kejriwal, Satyendar Jain and Manish Sisodia are being kept behind bars. I have confidence that the locks of the jail will break and they will come out…They want to break the AAP…Tanashahi macha rakhi hai desh ke andar," he said after emerging from jail.

Singh was arrested by the ED on October 4 last year and spent the past six months in jail. He was granted bail by the Supreme Court in the money laundering case related to the Delhi excise policy scam on Tuesday.

The senior AAP leader was welcomed with loud cheers and slogans as soon as he walked out of jail. Visuals shared online showed the politician climbing atop a vehicle parked outside the jail and addressing the supporters gathered there. AAP workers and Sanjay Singh supporters also showered flower petals on party MP's father Dinesh Singh.

“We have to go amongst the people of Delhi, wherever the AAP candidates and the INDIA bloc candidates are fighting in the upcoming general elections. We have to work hard to defeat the dictatorial government. We have to throw them out of power," Singh told gathered supporters.

He later met with Sunita Kejriwal and Seema Sisodia — the wives of jailed AAP leaders Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia at their residences.
