Sardar Jogindra Singh Sahib, Taluqdar Of Oudh, comes from an old Batth Jatsikh family, which held large Jagirs in Hoshiarpur and Amritsar Districts. At the time of the Mutiny the Sardar’s grandfather, Sardar Bahadur Punjab Singh Sahib, was given command of a regiment, and rendered conspicuous service to the British Government. He led his regiment with great success and wrote his own despatches. The Government gave him a large grant of land in Oudh.

Sirdar Jogendra Singh was a Taluqdar of Oudh, has been a regular contributor to English Press, and has published two Novels “ Nurjahan” and “ Nasrin.” Later he was at working as a Home Minister in Patiala. Lord Hardinge in his recent speech spoke of him and Nawab Zulfiqar Ali Khan Sahib, C.SI., as follows –

“I cannot but warmly applaud the sagacity with which he has selected as his ministers two men of high ideals and unchallenged probity on whose advice he can rely with absolute confidence amid the many pitfalls which beset a ruler’s path”.
