‘Jail ke taale tootenge’: AAP MP Sanjay Singh proclaims as he walks out of jail after 6 months

Posted by

New Delhi: After spending six months in the Tihar Jail, Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh walked out of the prison on Wednesday evening and proclaimed that their struggle will continue and that he has complete faith that “jail ke taale tootenge” (the person locks will break) and party leaders Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Satyendra Jain will come out too.

Sanjay Singh walked out of jail on Wednesday, a day after the Supreme Court granted him bail in connection with the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) money laundering probe in the Delhi excise policy case. The apex court noted that there was “no trace” of the money allegedly received as bribes by his party for allotting liquor licences in policy implemented in the national capital for the year 2021-22.

Addressing a sea of supporters outside the Tihar, Singh climbed on top of a vehicle and asserted that “the time to celebrate has not come yet. This is the time to continue our struggle. Our party’s senior leaders Arvind Kejriwal, Satyendar Jain and Manish Sisodia are being kept behind bars….Mujhe poora bharosa hai ki jail ke taale tootenge aur who sab bahar aayenge (I have faith that the locks of the jail will break and they will come out),” he said in a thundering address to the crowd.

The Rajya Sabha MP was released on Wednesday after the jail authorities received the bail order from the Supreme Court.

Sanjay Singh meets Sunita Kejriwal

After addressing supporters outside Tihar, Singh directly went to the residence of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, arrested by the ED on March 21, to meet his wife Sunita Kejriwal. Later, he scheduled to visit the party office to meet leaders and workers.

Like Kejriwal, Singh was also arrested by the central agency on October 4 last year in its money laundering probe linked to the now-scrapped Delhi liquor policy. Following his release on bail on Tuesday, Delhi minister Atishi said the Supreme Court’s ruling asserted the party’s stance regarding the agency’s failure to trace alleged bribe money in the purported scandal and allegations of witness coercion.

Kejriwal’s former deputy Manish Sisodia and BRS leader K Kavitha have also been arrested in the case. Opposition parties have strongly criticised what they claim as the BJP-led Centre’s misuse of central agencies, making it a focal point of their campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
