Ravidas temple will be built with Rs 100 crore

To woo the Dalit voters of Bundelkhand region, the BJP government is constructing Sant Ravidas temple in Sagar. About 100 crores will be spent. Before this, Sant Ravidas Mandir Nirman Yatra is being taken out in all the districts of Madhya Pradesh. These yatras will conclude on August 12 at Sagar.

It was announced to build a memorial in February

CM Shivraj had announced the construction of Sant Ravidas Memorial on February 8 this year. Now its foundation stone will be laid. Samrasata Yatra was taken out for the construction of this memorial. 


Soil and water were collected from 313 development blocks for this construction work. Sant Ravidas Temple Construction Harmony Tour is being completed in Sagar on 12th August. Samarsata Yatra passed through 50 districts of the state. During the yatra, soil and water were collected from 313 development blocks for the construction of the temple, which will be used in the construction of the temple. In this entire journey, soil from 53 thousand villages and water from 315 rivers were collected. During the journey, a chariot focused on the personality and work of Saint Ravidas is also accompanying. In fact, on February 8, 2023, CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan had announced the construction of a memorial in Sagar.

Bid to woo 80 lakh voters

Just four months before the MP assembly elections, the PM is performing Bhumi Pujan for the construction of this temple. Which also has political meaning. BJP's game plan is to make a dent on the Dalit vote bank through this. However, only time will tell whether the construction of this temple will benefit the BJP in the elections or not. 80 lakh Dalit voters decide the victory or defeat in the 84 seats of the Vidhan Sabha.
