    Atal’s ashes to be scattered across 100 rivers

    The BJP on Sunday modified its programme to send 18 urns carrying former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpyee’s ashes for immersion in various rivers of Uttar Pradesh. Instead, the ashes would be immersed simultaneously in at least 100 rivers spread across 29 states and seven Union territories on Tuesday. BJP’s move to invoke Vajpayee is seen by political experts as a step to establish a direct emotional connect with people and invoke his legacy nationally ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in 2019.
