His death has left a big void," Dalmiya told reporters at the airport after arriving from Chennai.Dalmiya said he had known Scindia for a very long time and had the privilege of working with him. "No words can describe the loss.

Now he has left the world."Recalling his association with Scindia during the early 90s when he was the Board President, Dalmiya said he was impressed by his administrative efficiency and his demise was an 'irreparable loss'.
