Lok Sabha Elections 2024: Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh on Friday (April 12) met Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav in Uttar Pradesh's Lucknow, in a first meeting with an I.N.D.I.A bloc leader after being released from Tihar jail where he was lodged for six months in connection with the alleged liquor scam. Singh was released from the jail on April 3 evening after Supreme Court granted him relief and gave bail.

The duo addressed a joint press conference.

Akhilesh thanks AAP for "help"

Akhilesh Yadav thanked Singh for the "help" the alliance is getting in the elections and said that the AAP leader has faced "hardships and pain" after being "framed" in "false cases".

"This (Lok Sabha) election is not happening in a normal situation. Sending an elected CM (Arvind Kejriwal) to jail in fake cases, the same way sending Jharkhand CM to jail," Akhilesh said.

"I thank Sanjay Singh for the help we are getting from Aam Aadmi Party in our fight to save the democracy, Constitution and India's reputation. He also faced a lot of hardships and pain, he too was framed in false cases," he added.

Sanjay Singh alleges "Operation Lotus" in Delhi

Alleging "Operation Lotus" in the national capital, Sanjay Singh claimed that a minister of the Delhi government resigned succumbing to the pressure by the ED.

"...'Operation Lotus' has started in Delhi also. You have seen how one of our ministers was raided by ED and later he was pressured into resigning. INDIA alliance will win the 2024 elections. We are not contesting in UP but our party workers here will work to make sure SP & INDIA alliance candidates win from their respective seats. To save democracy and the Constitution, we are together. We are yet to hold talks with UP congress leadership..." he said.

Samajwadi Party and Aam Aadmi Party are part of the Opposition's I.N.D.I.A bloc comprising over 25 parties to fight against the BJP-led NDA for the Lok Sabha elections.

The general elections will be held in seven phases starting April 19. The results of the polls will be announced on June 4.
