Jindal, a renowned Indian industrialist, said in a statement, “Sardar Prakash Singh Badal Ji was a great leader, son of the soil and one of the most charismatic leaders of masses, farmers and weaker sections of society. As Chief Minister, he served the people of Punjab with tireless dedication. His contributions towards the development of Punjab and the welfare of farmers will always be remembered.

Jindal also met Sukhbir Singh Badal, deputy chief minister of Punjab and son of the late Prakash Singh Badal to share his condolences with him.
