The tributes are pouring in from all quarters after the death of ex-PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Now, the residents of Crossings Republik on Sunday conducted a peaceful march to pay homage to the stalwart from Bhartiya Janata Party.

The march was led by Crossings’ “Bharat Vikas Parishad.” It started from Gate no. 1 of GH-7 society at 6:30 pm and ended at Fountain Chowk after walking through the whole campus. Then, people lit up candles there and prayed for the departed soul.

Payal Tripathi, the Woman Coordinator of Parishad's Crossings branch, said that the event was quite successful as over 150 people turned up to participate in the event.

She also said that the event was apolitical and was held purely out of love and reverence for Vajpayee. “Our organisation is not aligned with any political party,” she added.

Supriya, a resident of Sam Clement City, a housing society in Crossings, said that Vajpayee was one such political leader who commanded respect across masses and all political spectrums.

“He was an all-time favourite politician for me, my family and friends despite our ideological differences,” she said. Bharat Vikas Parishad is a pan India social organisation which has over 42 branches alone in Ghaziabad.
