Prime Minister Narendra Modi and senior BJP leaders handed urns with former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s ashes to party presidents from across the country at a function here today. Party chief Amit Shah, Home Minister Rajnath Singh and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, as well as members of Vajpayee’s family, were present at the event held in the BJP headquarters here. The BJP has decided to take out ‘asthi kalash yatras’ in all districts and immerse the ashes in rivers across the country.

The yatra was being organised as party workers and people in the country wanted to pay tribute to the late prime minister, who died last week after prolonged illness at the age of 93, party leaders said. Processions will start from state capitals and will pass through all blocks, they said.
