Passionate advocacy

Sajid Javid, former Chancellor of the Exchequer, commented: “I am deeply saddened to hear that Ramniklal has passed away. His passionate advocacy for his community and contribution to modern Britain is only eclipsed by the personal qualities that made him so beloved.

“His unfailing grace and humour; the dedication to hard work – and the love and care for his family and friends.

“My thoughts are with the Solanki family as we remember and celebrate the life and legacy of Ramniklal Solanki CBE.”
