President Pratibha Patil and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today greeted the people on the occasion of Guru Ravidas Jayanti.

“On the happy occasion of the birth anniversary of Guru Ravi Das, let us recall the services of that saint and reformer who devoted his life to the service of India’s suffering humanity," Patil said.
"May we derive inspiration from Guru Ravi Das to rededicate ourselves to eradicate social inequities in our society," she added.
Singh said Guru Ravidas was one of the greatest saints of the Bhakti movement whose teachings focused on equality of mankind and universal brotherhood.
