Lucknow: Bahujan Smajwadi Party chief Mayawati on Sunday clamed that Narendra Modi government is trying to hide behind the Indo-Pak tensions. Mayawati has been extreamly  critical on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his party, accusing him of "betraying national sentiments", after the PM interacted with over one crore BJP workers from 15,000 locations across the country, in a mega video conference.

"It is not hidden from the people of Uttar Pradesh and the country on how depressing the central government  led by the Bhartiya Janta Party has failed in providing good governance and in addressing problems facing the country", she said, while pressurizing party activists to fan out and inform people on how the issue was being "misused" by the ruling party to hide its failures.  The Mayawati- Akhilesh Yadav alliance is contesting the coming national elections in three states - Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Uttrakhand which account for 110 seats in the Lok Sabha.

"In the past few days, the country is concerned and sad about the terror incidents that have been happening in Jammu and Kashmir. The BJP and especially PM Modi is trying to hide his failures and short comings in the garb of what is happening there," alleged ,she added that "nothing is secret from the people of India.

"At a time when India is facing war situation and country needs firm leadership, PM Modi instead of concentrating on the matters of national security, trying to serve political interest by addressing his BJP workers is ridiculous besides betrayal of national sentiments, Mayawati tweeted.

Mayawati arrived in Lucknow after a gap of 45 days and met the candidates for the Lok Sabha Polls who have already reportedly started campaigning. The BSP has not yet formally announced the names of its candidates. The party will contest in 38 of the 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh and its ally, SP will contest in 37 seats.
