New Delhi: Thousands of people today joined the funeral procession of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee with Prime Minister Narendra Modi walking behind the gun carriage carrying the mortal remains.

BJP chief Amit Shah, several union ministers and party leaders also walked sombrely behind the carriage as it made its way to the Rashtriya Smirti Sthal where the last rites would be performed.

Vajpayee, 93, passed away at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here last evening after a prolonged illness.

A huge crowd of people showered petals at the funeral procession and jostled to get a glimpse of the former prime minister.
