Former Aam Aadmi Party MLA Jarnail Singh died on Friday at the age of 48 after contracting Covid in the last week of April. He had been under intensive care at the Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital for a past few days. He was the former MLA from Rajouri Garden.
As soon as the news of his demise surfaced, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia mourned over the demise and took to their twitter handle to pour their condolences.
Let us remind you that Singh had resigned from his seat in the Delhi assembly to contest the 2017 assembly polls in Punjab. Later, he contested the high-profile Lambi seat against Prakash Singh Badal and Capt Amarinder Singh where Badal won the seat. Singh was a resident of Lajpat Nagar in Delhi who had survived the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and he even authored a book 'I accuse: The Anti-Sikh Violence of 1984' detailing several unknown aspects.
