Speaking on the occasion, Dera Sachkhand Ballan head Sant Niranjan Dass Ji said, "As we celebrate the birth anniversary of Guru Ravidas Ji, we should learn from his teachings of serving the mankind irrespective of caste, creed or religion. With a vision to increase access of Janma Asthan Mandir at Seer Goverdhanpur, the government of India under the leadership of our Prime Minister Narendra Modi has undertaken several initiatives and announced several projects for the same.
