A Delhi Court has granted Aam Aadmi Party leader Sanjay Singh permission to complete the necessary paperwork for his re-nomination to the Rajya Sabha. The mandate of Sanjay Singh expires on January 27.
Special Judge MK Nagpal issued an order on an application filed by the politician, who stated that his current term as a member of Rajya Sabha is expiring on 27 January and that the Returning officer has issued a notice on January 2 for the conduct of the election and nominations for the same are to be submitted.
An application was moved in Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court for permission to take Singh’s signature for “Undertaking” which is stated to be required in connection with getting a “No Dues Certificate” for the applicant (Sanjay Singh).
In the application, Singh requested permission from the superintendent of Tihar Jail to sign the necessary paperwork.

“It is being directed that if the documents are presented by counsel for accused before jail authorities on on January 6, 2024, the jail superintendent shall ensure that the signatures of the accused are permitted to be taken on said documents and he is also permitted to meet his counsel for half-an-hour to discuss the modalities in connection with filing of the said nomination”, Judge passed order on Thursday.
Singh had been detained by the anti-money laundering organization on October 4. According to the ED, Singh was instrumental in the creation and execution of the now-canceled excise policy, which favored specific liquor producers, distributors, and retailers for financial gain. The AAP chief has vehemently denied the assertion.
