Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday greeted the people on the occasion of Basava Jayanthi.
The Prime Minister took to Twitter to convey his wishes.
"On Basava Jayanthi I bow to Sri Basavanna, who devoted his life to service and social reform.
His ideals have left a deep impact on society," Prime Minister Modi tweeted.
