Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh received a rousing welcome from party workers on Wednesday as he walked out of Delhi’s Tihar jail a day after getting bail in the alleged Delhi excise policy case.

Surrounded by party workers after coming out, AAP leader Sanjay Singh said “this is not a time for celebration but struggle”, referring to party supremo and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal who is in Tihar jail in connection with the same case.

“Not a time for celebration but struggle,” he said, after his release from Tihar jail.

"This is the time to struggle. The biggest leaders of our party (AAP) - Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain - have been kept behind the bars. I am confident that one day the locks of this prison will be broken and they will come out. This is why I want to say that this is not the time to celebrate, this is the time to struggle," he said.

Later, in his address to the party workers from AAP headquarters in Delhi, Singh said Arvind Kejriwal will not resign.

“He will continue to work for 2 crore people of Delhi,” he said.

He said time has come to give BJP a reply, they've inducted all corrupt from across country

“There is widespread tyranny in country, all of us are with CM Arvind Kejriwal,” he said.

He added: "From the party office, I want to tell the dictator of the nation that this is AAP, we were born from an agitation. You want to destroy our party? You have sent Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain to jail. What was their crime? Their crime was that they wanted to give better education to 2 crore people of Delhi."

Commenting of the release of his party colleague Sanjay Singh, Delhi Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj said the party will continue to struggle since the party’s leadership including its supremo Kejriwal is in jail.

"Sanjay Singh has clearly said that this is not the time to celebrate but to struggle. The locks of the prison will be broken and Arvind Kejriwal will be released. Our three leaders (Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain) are still in jail. Therefore, our party will continue to struggle,” Bharadwaj said.

Delhi Minister Atishi while commenting over the release of her party colleague Singh from Tihar said “truth has triumphed”.

"Truth has triumphed. For the last two years, they have been investigating this fake liquor policy case. ED conducted several raids but still, they could not find corruption money from AAP leaders...," she said.

In his reaction over the release of his party colleague, AAP leader Jasmine Shah said he (Singh) is "AAP’s lion" and his release proves that there is no money trail.

"Sanjay Singh is AAP's lion...BJP put him behind bars in a false case & no money trail was found. Supreme Court said that this is a false case & a plan to finish AAP. Sanjay Singh being released proves that there is no money trail...The struggle will continue...,"he said.
