Chennai: The ashes of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee will be immersed at six locations in Tamil

Nadu, including the Cauvery, on August 26, the BJP state unit said today.

BJP state president Tamilisai Soundararajan said the ashes would be immersed in the sea at Chennai, Rameswaram and

Kanniyakumari.

They would also be immersed in the Cauvery at Srirangam, besides Vaigai and Bhavani rivers in Madurai and Erode

respectively, Soundararajan told PTI.

Soundararajan will bring the funerary urn here from New Delhi tomorrow and it will be taken in a procession to the party

office Kamalalayam in T Nagar.

The ashes will be kept there for the public to pay homage on Thursday. A number of political leaders are expected to pay

homage, party sources said.

The ashes will be later taken to various regions of the state before being immersed on Sunday simultaneously at 11 AM at

all the designated locations, a party release said.
