Amritpal Singh Granted Parole, Expected to Take Oath as MP on July 5

July 3, 2024: National Security Act detainee Amritpal Singh will take oath on July 5, announced Faridkot MP Sarbjeet Singh Khalsa on his social media account.

Taking to Facebook, he said that Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla has confirmed the same to him.

The ‘Waris Punjab De’ chief is likely to be flown directly to the Parliament in a helicopter from Assam’s Dibrugarh jail, according to Punjab police sources.

Amritsar Deputy Commissioner Ghansham Thori confirmed that Amritpal Singh has been granted parole.

He said Amritpal has been granted parole for up to four days or less beginning July 5, with certain conditions that have been communicated to Dibrugarh Jail Superintendent. Amritsar Police will accompany him to Delhi.

Rajdev Singh Khalsa, former MP and spokesperson for Amritpal, said that he learned about his parole from social media where the Faridkot MP had confirmed that he was allowed to take the oath.

He mentioned that an elected member can take the oath within 60 days of the results being declared.

Amritpal defeated Congress leader Kulbir Singh Zira by a margin of over 1.97 lakh votes.

Amritpal’s mother, Balwinder Kaur, said that the family learned about his parole only from news reports. “We have no information from the administration about him getting parole. We don’t know when he will be taking the oath,” she said.

She pointed out that if he was granted parole, he should be brought to Punjab as well so that he could thank the people who wholeheartedly voted for him.

On Monday morning, some rebel leaders visited the Amritsar home of the Khalistani activist and met his parents.

Recently, the Punjab Government sent an application to Speaker Om Birla for the grant of parole to Amritpal Singh to take the oath as Khadoor Sahib MP.

Meanwhile, his supporters feel he should get an opportunity to serve his duties and “bust the image of an anarchist.”

They are, however, reluctant to discuss the contradictory stand Amritpal took by contesting the Lok Sabha poll despite having claimed that he did not have faith in the Indian Constitution.
