"Besides paying obeisance at Ravidas temple, the leaders should also try to adopt his ideology, only then the poor and downtrodden of the country can benefit", Mayawati said while referring to Modi's Varanasi visit.

Attacking ruling Samajwadi Party government in the state, Mayawati said it did not have a moral right to celebrate Ravidas Jayanti as immediately after coming to power it had changed name of district Ravidas Nagar to Bhadohi.

"The SP has not right to celebrate Ravidas Jayanti as it did not respect him and had changed the district's name to Bhadohi again after coming to power", she added.
