30 Mar :We are shocked to learn about the sad demise of Captain Kanwaljit Singh ji, Senior SAD leader and Minister for Cooperation, in a road accident in Kharar, on Sunday, March 29, 2009.
Captain Kanwaljit Singh ji served the Punjab Government in various capacities viz. Minister for Finance and Planning; Minister of State for Home Affairs; Vice-Chairman-Punjab State Planning Board; Chairman-Empowered Committee to facilitate growth of social and economic infrastructure and Vice-Chairman, Punjab Infrastructure Development Board.
He was a pillar of strength, great visionary and able administrator in the Government of Punjab. He was always ready to help the Panjab University as and when we approached him. His contributions to the Society and especially the Panjab University, will always be remembered.
It is really a irreparable loss to the family, Government of Punjab and to the Society. This loss cannot be compensated in any way and we have to accept the ways of nature. The only way is to lead one’s life living in the gracious presence of all those good things for which Captain Kanwaljit Singh ji guided the Society.
We express our deep shock and grief over the untimely and tragic demise of Punjab Cooperation Minister and Senior SAD leader Captain Kanwaljit Singh ji. I pray to the Almighty to give peace to the departed soul in Heaven and strength and courage to the bereaved family members to bear this irreparable loss. The best tribute to the departed leader would be to carry on the good works done by him and to provide nurturing support to the entire family.
