Thackeray's body to kept at Shivaji Park

Mumbai, Nov 17 , 2012 (IANS)
The body of Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray, who breathed his last here Saturday afternoon, will be kept at Shivaji Park to enable millions of party activists and Mumbaikars to pay their last respects to the leader from 7 a.m. Sunday, party MP Sanjay Raut told reporters.

Raut also appealed to all Shiv Sainiks to "maintain calm and remain peaceful" in the wake of the tragedy which has befallen them.

Shivaji Park in south-central Mumbai is the same place where 46 years ago, Thackeray addressed his first Dussehra rally and continued the annual tradition virtually uninterrupted till his death Saturday.

Last month, Thackeray 'addressed' the rally in a videographed message in which he had confessed of his failing health.
