Bhind: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said neither he nor his party coined the ‘chowkidar chor hai’ slogan, and attributed the jibe to the youth and farmers.

Addressing a poll rally here, Mr Gandhi attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Rafale deal, claiming the latter ensured that a “thief”, industrialist Anil Ambani, got it.

 

“Mediapersons asked me today about the genesis of the chowkidar chor hai slogan. I told them that while addressing a rally in Chhattisgarh, I said the chowkidar promised two crore jobs to the youth and assured Rs 15 lakh will be deposited in bank account of each Indian. Around 10-15 young men in the rally said ‘chor hai’.

“I did not hear it the first time. So I asked (the young men) what did you say? They said ‘chor hai’. This slogan was not coined by the Congress, or by Rahul Gandhi but it is a slogan of the youth, farmers and labourers of India.”
