During the meeting, Sushil Kumar Gupta – whose tenure as a member of the Rajya Sabha will end this month – also reportedly conveyed his aspiration to fully immerse himself in the electoral politics of Haryana, where the Arvind Kejriwal-led party wants to fight elections later this year.

Earlier, a Delhi court had allowed Singh, who was arrested in a money laundering case related to the alleged Delhi excise policy scam, to sign forms and documents for his Rajya Sabha re-nomination.

Special Judge MK Nagpal had passed the order on the application filed by Singh, in which he had sought a direction to the Tihar Jail Superintendent to allow him to sign the documents.
