The Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, has expressed deep grief over the passing away of the former Member of Rajya Sabha, Shri Dara Singh, who was a noted film actor, producer, and an internationally acclaimed wrestler. Following is the text of the Prime Minister’s condolence message:
“I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing away of Shri Dara Singh, who has been an inspiration and icon to many generations in our country. A self educated son-of-the-soil, he rose to the heights of the entertainment world, sports arena and public life with humility and grace. His contribution to the Hindi and Punjabi cinema, wrestling and the Upper House of the Parliament will be remembered by millions.
I wish to send my deepest condolences to the family of Shri Dara Singh and to his countless admirers in India and abroad.”
