He was speaking at a condolence meeting to mourn the death of Raj Singh Dungarpur at Mumbai.
"I know that here, CCI have named rooms after the ex-cricketers, the library is also named after a cricketer. Just like Prof. Shetty, I would like to request the management of CCI, I think the appropriate thing to do would be to name the main gate after Rajbhai because that is where I think is the right place for Rajbhai and I would strongly urge that," said Tendulkar.
