Former Balachaur Member of Legislative Assembly Nand Lal died of cancer in a private hospital at Mohali on Sunday. He was 74.

Nand Lal, Shiromani Akali Dal’s Gujjar leader, had been elected MLA four times between 1997 and 2017. He’s survived by two sons. The cremation will be held on Monday.

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh expressed grief over the demise of Lal. In a condolence message, the Congress leader described Lal as a gentleman politician and leader of the masses with the qualities of head and heart, who worked tirelessly for the welfare of the downtrodden and overall development of his area.

The chief minister said Lal would be remembered by one and all, especially in Balachaur area for his strong connect with the locals at the grassroots level.

In his death, a void has been created in the political circles, which is difficult to be filled, Singh added. — With PTI inputs
