New Delhi: Addressing the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) workers after coming out of Tihar Jail, Sanjay Singh asserted, "Jail ke taale tootenge, saare neta chootenge (No prison can lock them for long, all the leaders will walk out of jail)." For the unversed,  Singh walked out of Tihar jail on Wednesday evening amid a sea of AAP supporters. Yesterday the Supreme Court had granted him bail in a money laundering case related to the Delhi excise policy scam after the Enforcement Directorate said it had no objections. 

“Jail ke taale tootenge, saare neta chootenge (No prison can lock them for long, all the leaders will walk out of jail). Jashn manane ka waqt nahi aya hai, sangharsh ka waqt hai'...This is not a time for celebration but a time for struggle. Arvind Kejriwal zindabad. 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...”, said Singh, who was released after the bail order was received by the jail authorities. 

'Will Keep The Fight On'

Speaking to reporters over Sanjay Singh's bail, AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj said, "Sanjay Singh has just come out of the jail & thousands of party workers welcomed him...He (Sanjay Singh) said that this is not the time to celebrate but struggle. Three of our top leaders- Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia & Satyendar Jain are still in jail. Until & unless they are released we will not celebrate we will keep on struggling..."

Echoing similar sentiments, AAP leader Atishi stated, "Truth has triumphed. For the last two years, they have been investigating this fake liquor policy case. ED conducted several raids but still, they could not find corruption money from AAP leaders..."   

Sanjay Singh's Bail Conditions

  •  A Delhi court has directed Singh not to tamper with evidence or influence witnesses in the Excise ‘scam’ case.
  • Singh has also been asked to submit his passport.
  • He will have to inform the court about the itinerary before leaving NCR
  • The AAP leader will have to always keep his phone location on.

Big Relief To Sanjay Singh

In a big relief to Sanjay Singh ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections 2024, the Supreme Court yesterday granted bail to Singh after six months in the money laundering case based on a concession given by the ED.  The AAP leader was released under terms and conditions set by the trial court. He will be allowed to engage in political activities but cannot make any statements with regard to the case. 

With this, Sanjay Singh becomes the first AAP leader to secure regular bail in liquorgate. Singh, like Delhi's CM Kejriwal, was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on October 4, last year, as part of its investigation into alleged money laundering related to the Delhi liquor policy case.

Alongside Kejriwal, his former deputy Manish Sisodia, AAP leader Satyendar Jain, and BRS leader K Kavitha have also been taken into custody in connection with the same case. Opposition parties have seized upon these arrests, accusing the BJP of misusing central agencies for political gain.
