Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently criticised the cow vigilantism and asked people to beware of its ‘fake’ protectors trying to divide society. PM Modi's comments come at a time when his government and BJP are facing flak over incidents of violence against Dalits and Muslims by cow vigilantes in various states.

However, she alleged that the recent statements of the prime minister on Dalits were an attempt at "damage control". The former chief minister also said, “Dalits don’t need the PM’s sympathy. Instead, he should focus on acting against those who commit atrocities against them.”
Mayawati also claimed that there have been incidents like the Rohith Vemula episode, the Una attack on youths and other atrocities which have affected BJP's image with regard to Dalits.

She also demanded that PM Modi should speak on the issue in Parliament. "If he can speak on it outside, he can also say it in the House," she said.
