As Chief Minister for four years from 1988 to 1992, he made a distinctive contribution to the development of the state, Singh said in a condolence message.
"In his death the country has lost a well known personality whose contribution to public life, particularly in
the North Eastern parts of the country, would be long remembered," the Prime Minister said.
Majumder set very high standards for political debate in the state and actively worked to promote good governance, he added.
