Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha LK Advani on Saturday condoled the demise of former BCCI President Raj Singh Dungarpur, saying he would be remembered for his contribution as a first class cricketer.
He said the passing away of 'Rajbhai' is a great loss to the Indian cricket. "I spoke to Jahnavi Dungapur, his niece, this morning and conveyed my condolences to the family."
"Shri Dungarpur's passion for cricket was well known. He will always be remembered for his contribution to the Indian cricket as a first-class player and an able administrator," the BJP leader said.
Advani said Dungarpur was also credited with the selection of young Sachin Tendulkar, who has grown to become a legend.
73-year-old Dungarpur died in Mumbai following a protracted illness.
