Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh also visited the temple and paid tribute to the saint. He said the Samajwadi Party is ready to fight along the ideals of the saint. “The followers of Sant Ravidas are spread across the country. His ideals of brotherhood, goodwill, equality and compassion are important and he taught that service to humanity is the real religion… He was opposed to hypocrisy and evil practices,” said Akhilesh.
