      In fact, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) government in the state had declared Ambedkar death anniversary as a public holiday but the decision was revoked after the Samajwadi Party (SP) government came to power in 2012. However, SP government under Akhilesh Yadav had declared a holiday on Ambedkar's birth anniversary in 2015.
