Cremation at Shivaji Park at 5-6pm today


Mumbai:Bal Thackeray's funeral will be performed on the Shivaji Park grounds between 5 and 6pm on Sunday. His body will be brought to the venue around 10am, and 5-6 lakh people are expected to visit in the course of the day. 
    While special BEST and state transport buses will ferry Thackeray's followers from within the city and outside to his last resting place, the average Mumbaikar will be left without taxis, autos and even fleet cabs as drivers-—some out of respect, others out of fear—have decided to stay off roads. Thus, access to railway stations and the airport— where prepaid booths will remain shut—will be severely curtailed. The railways, in view of the situation, have decided to cancel all megablocks, which means trains will run normally. 
    While visitors to the city are advised to arrange for their own modes of transport, residents should stock up on food or ration its use for the day as restaurants and bars, including those in five-star hotels, will remain closed till the evening.
