Jailed Punjab leader Amritpal Singh escorted out from Assam prison, ahead of Lok Sabha oath

Jailed head of punjab-de Waris Punjab De Amritpal Singh was on Friday morning escorted out of Dibrugarh jail in Assam by a team of the Punjab Police.

Singh is likely to take oath as a Lok Sabha Member of Parliament in the national capital on Friday.
In the recent 2024 Lok Sabha elections, Singh contested and won as an independant candidate from the Khadoor Sahib parliamentary seat in Punjab. He posted a massive margin of 1,97,120 votes, defeating his nearest rival, Kulbir Singh Zira of Congress.

Singh was arrested by Punjab police in April last year, weeks after he evaded police and a stringent National Security Act was invoked against him.

His parents, Tarsem Singh and Balwinder Kaur, and his wife Kirandeep Kaur, met the jailed activist in Dibrugarh Central jail last month after his Lok Sabha win.

Voting for 13 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab was held on June 1 in the seventh phase of the Lok Sabha elections.

The 2024 Lok Sabha elections took place from April 19 to June 1, in seven phases. The votes were counted and the results were declared on June 4, leading to the formation of the 18th Lok Sabha.

The BJP got 240 seats and NDA has secured 292 seats out of 543 Lok Sabha seats. Congress fought the election as part of the INDIA bloc and the parties together were able to prevent BJP from getting a majority on its own in Lok Sabha. The Congress secured 99 seats. Samajwadi Party got 37 seats, while Trinamool Congress got 29. DMK managed to win 22 seats.
