Sanjay Singh’s Oath as Rajya Sabha MP Deferred Amid Legal Issues

Rajya Sabha Chairman Refuses Oath; Matter Referred to Privileges Committee

Aam Aadmi Party leader Sanjay Singh will not take the oath as a Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament today, as the Rajya Sabha Chairman, Jagdeep Dhankhar, has declined permission. The Chairman stated that the matter is currently under consideration by the Privileges Committee. Sanjay Singh faces legal challenges, having been arrested and charge-sheeted in the Delhi Excise Policy money laundering case.

Chairman’s Decision and Legal Background

Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar has refused to allow Sanjay Singh to take the oath, directing the matter to the Privileges Committee. The decision follows legal complexities arising from Singh’s arrest and charge-sheeting in the Delhi Excise Policy money laundering case. A court had earlier allowed Singh to take oath as a Rajya Sabha MP in custody, but the situation has now evolved, leading to a deferral of the oath-taking.

Court Decision and Ongoing Legal Battles

The Rouse Avenue court had previously permitted Sanjay Singh to take oath as an MP in custody, extending his judicial custody until February 17. However, the recent decision by the Rajya Sabha Chairman puts a temporary hold on the oath-taking process. Singh’s legal battles include the ongoing Delhi Excise Policy case, where the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has opposed his bail, alleging involvement in money laundering related to the policy changes.

Legal and Political Ramifications

Sanjay Singh’s case raises legal and political ramifications, particularly as it intersects with parliamentary proceedings. The involvement of the Privileges Committee and the unfolding legal developments will likely shape the future course of action. As the legal complexities continue, the political landscape also remains affected by the uncertainties surrounding Singh’s parliamentary role.
