New Delhi, April 3

A day after he was granted bail by the Supreme Court in the Delhi excise case, AAP MP Sanjay Singh walked out of Tihar jail after six months on Wednesday and hit out at the BJP, saying it has inducted all corrupt leaders and that it was time to give a reply to the party.

"AAP will not be scared. (Delhi Chief Minister Arvind) Kejriwal, (Manish) Sisodia, (Satyendar) Jain are in jail because they want to give facilities to two crore people of Delhi. All of us are with Kejriwal," Singh, who reached the AAP headquarters late at night, told party workers.

"There is widespread tyranny in the country. The time has come to give a reply to the BJP," he said, accusing the party of inducting all corrupt leaders from different parts of the country.

Dressed in a white kurta-pajama with a brown jacket, the Rajya Sabha member walked out of jail and was garlanded by AAP workers. Singh climbed atop his vehicle as his supporters jostled to greet him.

He said it was not the time to celebrate but struggle and expressed confidence that other jailed party leaders would also come out soon.

After his release, Singh left for Kejriwal's residence where he met his wife Sunita Kejriwal.

In a video shared by the Aam Aadmi Party, Singh is seen touching the feet of Sunita when he met her.

"I saw tears in the eyes of Arvind Kejriwal's wife and Delhi's two crore people will give a reply to the BJP for these tears," Singh told AAP workers at the party headquarters.

"I will go and meet the families of Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain. They are like family to us and we are with them," he added.

Singh had been lodged in the high-security prison here since October 13, 2023. He came out at 8.11 pm through gate number three.

Jail officials said he was released after the completion of the bail procedure.

A large number of AAP supporters assembled outside the jail and raised the slogans of "Dekho dekho kaun aaya, sher aaya, sher aaya" and "Sanjay Singh Zindabad". They also showered rose petals on him.

There was heavy security outside the jail in view of his release.

"Arvind Kejriwal and our leaders have been put behind bars and I am confident that 'ye jail ke taale tutenge hamare sare neta chhootenge (the locks of jail will break and all our leaders will come out).
