Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh held a significant meeting with Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Sunday, lasting more than 20 minutes. The discussion focused primarily on the possible formulation of a common minimum programme within the INDIA bloc, which both parties aim to implement upon coming to power.

Addressing reporters after the meeting at Kharge’s residence in Delhi, Singh outlined the key points discussed during the interaction. "We deliberated on how all parties within the INDIA bloc could collaborate to formulate a common minimum programme. Additionally, we addressed concerns regarding the misuse of agencies against the opposition and emphasised the importance of safeguarding the Constitution," he said.

The meeting also touched upon the development of a common manifesto, with Singh expressing optimism about reaching a decision soon. "We are fully committed to supporting leaders within the INDIA bloc wherever necessary to ensure the effective implementation of our shared vision," he said.

Commenting on the BJP manifesto released on Sunday, Singh said: “You have a 10-year report card. What did you accomplish in 10 years? A manifesto shouldn't just be about promises... How much can people trust the manifesto? Did people receive 20 crore jobs? Did farmers get MSP? Was there a decline in inflation?"

Singh was released from Tihar Jail on 2 April after the Supreme Court granted bail to the AAP leader in a money-laundering case linked to the alleged Delhi excise policy scam, after noting that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has no objection to Singh being released on bail.

The top court said he would be released on such terms and conditions as may be fixed by the trial court, making it clear that the political leader will not make any public comment or speech in relation to his role in the pending case.
