How PM Modi launches ‘Mein Bhi Chowkidar’ campaign to boost his chances in 2019 Elections?

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a new campaign today called ‘Mein Bhi Chowkidar’ before the Lok Sabha Elections next month. The video regarding the same was also launched on 16th March by the PM on Twitter saying, "Your Chowkidar is standing firm and serving the nation". This campaign comes after Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s constant attacks on PM Modi over the Rafale jet deal, using the slogan, “Chowkidar Chor Hai ”.

Along with launching the campaign on Twitter, PM Modi also wrote, "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".

At the end of the video, there’s an appeal to the public to join his “Mein Bhi Chowkidar” programme on March 31st.

During 2014 Elections, Prime Minister had first used the word ‘chowkidar’, promising to the people that he will guard their money and trust if voted to the top office.

Contrary to this, the Congress President recently alleged, in a rally, that PM Modi used Rafale deal to provide benefit to industrialist Anil Ambani.

"Five years ago, chowkidar said he wanted to fight corruption. He said he wanted to make it a 'Congress-mukt Bharat'. Today, the slogan of 'Acche Din Aayenge' has changed to 'Chowkidar chor hai'," he said.

In 2014 Lok Sabha elections, BJP’s “Ache Din Aane Waale Hain” slogan became hugely popular among the general public and eventually, the party won by a record margin.

Both Congress and BJP are putting all their might to sway the voters and the coming days will be a lot busier as far as the rallies and campaigns are concerned.

This year’s elections will be held in seven phases, beginning from April 11, and the results will be announced on May 23rd, 2019.
