JAGAT SIṄGH NĀRAG (1883-1942), businessman and legislator of North-West Frontier Province, was
the son of Lālā Kanhaiyā Lāl, a practising lawyer of Peshāwar. As he grew up, Jagat Siṅgh went into business and started taking interest in social and civic affairs. On 7 January 1924, he was arrested in connection with the Gurdwārā Reform movement. He became a member of the Municipal Committee of Peshāwar in 1925 and was appointed an honorary magistrate in 1929. In 1936 he was elected to the only seat reserved for the Sikhs in the partly-elected provincial legislative council under the Government of India Act, 1919. When elections were held for the first elected legislative assembly provided under the Government of India Act, 1935, he was again elected a member from Peshāwar district. Jagat Siṅgh, along with Mehar Chand Khannā and Rāi Bahādur Īshwar Dās formed the Hindu Sikh Nationalist Party, which functioned within the assembly until it was suspended when the ministry under Dr Khān Sāhib resigned at the outbreak of World War II in 1939.
Jagat Siṅgh Nārag died in 1942.
