ये खबर बिलकुल ग़लत है। इंसाफ़ की लड़ाई में ना हम में से कोई पीछे हटा है, ना हटेगा। सत्याग्रह के साथ साथ रेलवे में अपनी ज़िम्मेदारी को साथ निभा रही हूँ। इंसाफ़ मिलने तक हमारी लड़ाई जारी है। कृपया कोई ग़लत खबर ना चलाई जाए। pic.twitter.com/FWYhnqlinC— Sakshee Malikkh (@SakshiMalik) June 5, 2023

They resumed the protest in April after a halt.Singh has maintained the allegations to be false. He is said to address a BJP rally in Uttar Pradesh in June.
