CHANDIGARH, DECEMBER 19 : Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal today expressed profound grief and sorrow over the sad demise of former Minister Raja Narinder Singh, who passed away this morning after a prolonged illness. He was 89 and survived by his wife, a son and a daughter.
In a condolence message, the Chief Minister described Raja Narinder Singh as a seasoned politician and disciplined solider of the party with rare qualities of head and heart. Raja Narinder Singh was a fine human being and above all a true mass leader who tirelessly served the people at grassroots level throughout his political career starting from Municipal Council Nabha as a Councilor in 1950 besides serving as Minister thrice. Describing Raja Narinder Singh’s demise as a personal loss, the Chief Minister said that the party has been bereft of his valuable services and void has been created which was difficult to be filled.
Sharing his heartfelt sympathies with the members of the bereaved family, the Chief Minister prayed to the Almighty to grant eternal peace to the departed soul and give courage to bear this huge loss in this hour of grief.
