The former parliamentarian is survived by two sons -- Chandravijay Singh and Maanvijay Singh.

Expressing profound grief over the former MP's demise, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar announced that Singh will be cremated with full state honours.

In his condolence message, Kumar said Singh had played a key role in the developing the education sector and the society as a whole.

"A golden and glorious era has come to an end with Singh's death. He had lavishly donated his land and resources for the development of education and health sectors. His death has caused irreparable loss to the fields of politics and society," the chief minister added.
