PM Narendra Modi launched ‘mai bhi chowkidar’ (I am a watchman too) campaign ahead of the Lok Sabha polls. He also released a video with the same title on his Twitter page.
“Your Chowkidar is standing firm & serving the nation. But, I am not alone. Everyone who is fighting corruption, dirt, social evils is a Chowkidar. Everyone working hard for the progress of India is a Chowkidar. Today, every Indian is saying-#MainBhiChowkidar,” PM tweeted.
This move was taken by PM to counter the jibe of ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’ by Congress Party President Rahul Gandhi over alleged graft in the Rafale deal with the slogan ‘chowkidar chor hai’ (watchman is a thief).
