Ranchi: The ashes of late Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee will be immersed in the rivers of Jharkhand, a state BJP official said here on Saturday.

The announcement came after Chief Minister Raghubar Das on Friday night held a meeting with officials and ministers in New Delhi.

"In the meeting it was decided that the former leader's ashes will be immersed in the rivers of the state by organising a Kalash Yatra which will move across every district," Deepak Prakash, the Vice President for the Bharatiya Janata Party's Jharkhand unit.

Officials have been directed to plan a route map and also fix a date.
