Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Friday taunted the BJP's 'Main Bhi Chowkidar' campaign, two days after she accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of changing his profile from 'Chaiwala' to 'Chowkidar' only to get votes in the Lok Sabha polls.

In a series of tweets in Hindi, Mayawati said that ever since the campaign was launched, people like Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath were in a fix on whether they should remain people's representatives or become 'chowkidars'.

The four-time Chief Minister also warned the Bharatiya Janata Party leaders and workers to refrain from doing anything that was untoward and against the law and order.

In another tweet, she said that it was worrying that the union government was not allowing the release of data pertaining to poor employment, growing joblessness, increasing poverty, distress among farmers and labourers, just for the sake of losing votes and safeguarding their image.

"Does the country need such a 'chowkidaar'?" she asked.

Ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, Modi last week tweeted a video with the hashtag '#MainBhiChowkidar' (I am also a watchman) and changed his Twitter handle to Chowkidar Narendra Modi. 

The Prime Minister also called all those fighting corruption and social evils 'watchmen' and asked them to participate in the campaign for a better India.
