CHANDIGARH:Welfare Minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot on Wednesday expressed grief over the passing away of world-renowned Punjabi singer Sardool Sikander, who breathed his last today after a brief illness. He is survived by his wife and two sons.

In his condolence message, the Minister described Sikander as a great versatile singer, who would be ever remembered for his immense contribution to enrich Punjabi singing. The demise of legendary singer Sardool Sikander is an irreparable loss for singing and art fraternity, he added.

Dharamsot had personally gone to the private hospital where Sikander was admitted after he tested COVID positive last month. Sikander was born in village Kheri Naud Singh of Fatehgarh, and had migrated to Khanna in Ludhiana district nearly two decades ago. Sardool Sikander’s two brothers Gamdoor Aman and Bharbhoor Ali were residing in the village and elder brother and Sufi singer Gamdoor Aman passed away nearly two decades back while the younger brother and renowned player of the Tabla Ustad Bharbhoor Ali  passed away a year ago.
