"Memorials of Kanshi Ram and B.R. Ambedkar are in a bad condition due to years of negligence. If the Chief Minister is concerned about Kanshi Ramji, then why doesn't he do anything for the maintenance of his memorial? This will definitely give some peace to Kanshi Ramji's soul," told ANI.

Earlier in the day, the chief minister said Kanshi Ram's soul would be deeply hurt with what is happening within the under the leadership of his protege

He said, "They (BSP) should introspect that why did they do away with the movements started by Kashi Ram and are indulging into corruption."

Adityanath's statement comes in the backdrop of Mayawati's decision to sack leader Naseemuddin Siddiqui.
