Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi offered chaddar at Sant Kabir tomb in Uttar Pradesh (UP). Later, he participated in several development works in the area. While addressing at these events, Modi venerated Kabir and Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, while slamming Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav. His words were seen as carefully chosen to garner support of the downtrodden, especially the weavers community to which Kabir belonged. In the face of recent defeat of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in by-polls in UP, his words seemed significant.
