Former Union Minister Mahadev Khandela and others paid tributes today to Bajrang Dass Aggarwal (65), popularly known as “Guar Gum King”, who recently died during treatment in Medanta Hospital in Gurugram.
At a meeting in Vikas WSP Limited complex in Sriganganagar, Khandela expressed sympathies with BD’s daughter Kamini Jindal, former MLA and her spouse Gagandeep Singla SP Sikar.
Aggarwal family had moved from Hisar to Sriganganagar in the 1980s to start their business of pulses and processing units.

The prices of guar produce and guar gum skyrocketed in 2010. His business spread in Asia and Europe. He entered politics in 2012 and founded the Zamindara Party.

In the 2013 Assembly elections, the party fielded candidates from 20 constituencies. His daughter Kamini Jindal was elected from Sriganganagar and Sona Devi Bawri from Raisinghnagar.

Aggarwal had donated Rs 100 crore and pledged an equal amount for the equipment to raise medical college in Sriganganagar but the project could not be completed due to hurdles reportedly created by Vasundhara Raje led BJP govt. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot had laid its foundation and had some time back sent a team to finalise the site plan.

Through a charitable trust in the memory of his father Megh Raj Jindal, he carried out various welfare activities and sponsored gifts to war widows.
