Elaborate security arrangements have been made in the temple town of Ayodhya for the cremation of president of Ramjanmabhoomi Nyas Ramchandradas Paramhans, to be attended by Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and several other VVIPs.
Vajpayee will arrive in Ayodhya at around 1345 IST and will pay floral tributes to the departed soul, Additional District Magistrate (Administration) Sudhakar Adeeb said.
The funeral procession will start from Digambar Akhara and after taking a round of the town, the body
