In relation to the ED’s money laundering investigation into the now-canceled Delhi excise policy, Sanjay Singh has been detained since October. Sanjay Singh, the leader of the Aam Aadmi Party, will not swear in as a Rajya Sabha MP on Monday. The chairman of the Rajya Sabha has declined to allow Singh to take the oath of office, citing the Privileges Committee as the current source of information. On July 24 of last year, Sanjay Singh was suspended from the Rajya Sabha for disobeying the chair’s instructions. In police custody, the 51-year-old AAP leader was granted permission by a Delhi court on Saturday to take an oath of office as an MP at Rouse Avenue.

Two days after Singh had petitioned the court to be granted temporary bail so he could take an oath and attend the current Parliament Budget Session from February 5 to 9, the court issued its order.

The AAP leader had to travel to Sultanpur for a hearing in a separate case that was filed against him on February 7, according to a submission made by Singh’s attorney in court regarding his request for temporary bail. The politician’s request for temporary bail was denied by the court, and he was permitted to take an oath on Monday since the ED did not object to his revised plea. In relation to the ED’s money laundering investigation into the now-canceled Delhi excise policy, Sanjay Singh has been detained since October. On January 4, he was allowed to visit the returning officer to pick up his membership certificate.

The central agency is looking into the case’s claimed money laundering. The case concerns the excise policy implemented by the Arwind Kejriwal government in 2021–2022, which aims to revive the struggling liquor industry in the nation’s capital.

The Delhi excise policy case concerns the accusation that the Delhi government, led by Arvind Kejriwal, encouraged cartelization and favored certain dealers who had allegedly paid bribes for it. The AAP has vigorously denied these claims.

Manish Sisodia, the former deputy chief minister of Delhi and party colleague of Sanjay Singh, has been incarcerated since March of last year in connection with the same case. Anita Singh, Singh’s wife, claims that this is the first time in the past that an elected official has left prison to retake an oath as a member of parliament.

For us, it comes down to happiness. For the first time in history, a leader is being released from prison to retake the oath of office as a member of parliament. Anita, cited by the news agency, expressed gratitude to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, “our elder brother,” for having faith in him.
