Vajpayee's ashes immersed in river Barak with chants of 'Atal Ji Amar Rahe' in background
At about 12:40 PM, Ministers of Assam Ranjit Dutta and Sum Ronghang landed in Silchar Airport with an urn wrapped in a red cloth. In the airport, Parimal Suklabaidya, Kabindra Purkayastha waited to receive them. At about 1:15 in the afternoon, Dutta and others checked out, and the ashes of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee had arrived in Silchar. The golden coloured urn with ‘Om’ painted on it with red was kept at the center of the Airport and passers-by stopped to pay tribute to the Bharat Ratna.
