While PM Modi is also proposed to address a public gathering of Ravidasiyas near Ravidas temple in Seer Govardhanpur area, the Aam Aami Party (AAP) UP unit has not yet received a detailed programme from Kejriwal.

“Arvind Kejriwal is visiting Varanasi on Ravidas Jayanti to offer prayer at Ravidas temple. But a detailed programme of his entire schedule is yet to be received,” said Vaibhav Maheshwari, spokesperson of Uttar Pradesh unit of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
