Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Serve Langar At Varanasi Temple On Occasion of Guru Ravidas Jayanti

Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra served Langar today at a temple in Varanasi on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Ravidas Jayanti.

The day also saw Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh stealing time from a hectic poll campaign to visit Seer Goverdhanpur, the birthplace of Guru Ravidas in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh.

The Election Commission of India (ECI) had postponed Punjab Assembly elections in view of Guru Ravidas birth anniversary. The polls, which were slated to be held on February 14, have been shifted to February 20.

Vadra during her visit to Uttar Pradesh today will also campaign in the poll-bound state. She will conduct a door-to-door campaign in Kanpur cantonment and Kidwai Nagar. This will be followed by a door-to-door campaign at Sisamau and Arya Nagar. She will then participate in Mahila Shakti Garjana at Govind Nagar, Kanpur.

Sant Ravidas belonged to the bhakti movement during the 15th to 16th century and his hymns are included in the Guru Granth Sahib. He is considered the founder of the 21st-century Ravidassia religion.

Ravidas Jayanti is celebrated on Magh Purnima, which is the full moon day of the Magh month as per the Hindu calendar.
