Bhubaneswar, Sep 3 (UNI) Several programmes have been chalked out by the followers of Swami Laxamananda Sarswati, killed by unidentified assailants on August 23 last, to pay their respect and tribute to the great saint.
RSS national executive member Ram Madhavji told newspersons here that Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik was told about the programmes, which would be held as per the rituals.
As per the programme, a ''Kalas yatra'' carrying the soils from Swamiji's ''Samadhi'' and his photograph would be organised throughout the country from September 8 to 23.
Memoranda protesting the killings would be submitted to each state Governor. In Orissa the yatra would touch almost every village.
On September seven a ''Sivalinga'' would be installed on the ''Samadhi'' of the Swamiji and homa, yagna and bhajan would be organised at the Chakapada Ashram.
The Swami Laxamananda Saraswati Shradhanjali Samiti would organise a silent rally of around 1000 sadhus in Bhubaneswar on September six in protest against the murder. Later in the day the sadhus would hold a meeting to express their love and pay tribute to the great saint.
