How jailed MP Amritpal Singh to take oath?

As per the latest update, the National Security Act (NSA) detention of Waris Punjab De head and newly elected MP from Khadoor Sahib Amritpal Singh and nine of his associates has been extended by one year. 

The original NSA detention period for Amritpal Singh and three associates was set to expire on July 24, while the NSA detention for six other associates was due to end on June 18.

Noting that the National Security Act (NSA) detention of Waris Punjab De head and newly elected MP from Khadoor Sahib Amritpal Singh and nine of his associates has been extended by one year,  it is evident that Amritpal Singh will not be able to attend the oath-taking ceremony scheduled for June 25. 

According to Advocate Rajdev Singh Khalsa, who represents Amritpal Singh, every newly elected MP receives a designated time slot from the Parliament Office to take their oath. Amritpal Singh was also informed of his scheduled time via the phone number registered under his name. However, it seems that it is impossible for him to attend the oath ceremony.
