BSP Chief Mayawati has joined the growing list of prominent leaders not attending PM Modi's One Nation One Election meeting.

In her tweets form her verified account, Mayawati said that 'One Nation One Election' is just an effort to distract people from real issues in the country.

She has mentioned poverty, inflation, unemployment and violence as the issues country needs to tackle.

Mayawati seemed to renew Opposition's attack on the use of EVMs to conduct elections in the country. In one of her tweets, she claimed that Indian voters no longer trust the EVMs and had the meeting been called to address the 'dangerous' trend, she would have thought about attending the meeting.

List of prominent Opposition leaders wanting to give One Nation One Election meet a miss is growing.

On Tuesday, West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee announced that she will not be attending the meeting. She was soon joined by DMK president MK Stalin. Telugu Desam Party chief and former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Chandrababu Naidu has announced his disinclination to attend the meeting as well.

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi will not be attending the meeting.
