A day after launching the “Main Bhi Chowkidar (I am a watchman too)” campaign on social media, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has changed the title of his Twitter account to “Chowkidar Narendra Modi”. BJP president Amit Shah also followed the PM as he changed his name on Twitter to “Chowkidar Amit Shah”.
Union Ministers Piyush Goyal, JP Nadda, Harsh Vardhan and Dharmendra Pradhan have also followed their leaders in changing their names on Twitter accounts. .
“The one who made cleanliness a moral value… he is called Chowkidar #MainBhiChowkidar. Say with all your heart #ChowkidarPhirSe (watchman again),” Amit Shah tweeted after senior BJP leaders changed their names.
This comes a day after PM Modi launched his party’s “Main Bhi Chowkidar (I am a watchman too)” campaign ahead of the national election that begins next month. The PM released a video with the same title on Twitter and said, “Your Chowkidar is standing firm and serving the nation”.
The campaign comes as a counter to Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s repeated attacks on PM Modi and his government over the Rafale jet deal, with the slogan, “Chowkidar Chor Hai (watchman is a thief)”.
