New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Main Bhi Chowkidaar” campaign drew barbs from the opposition after BJP leaders rushed to add “chowkidar” to their Twitter handles.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi tweeted that the truth “cannot be extinguished”.

 

"You can keep trying Modi, but the truth cannot be extinguished. Every Indian is saying it. #ChowkidarChorHai P.S: Do force Sushma ji to add "Chowkidar" to her handle. It's looking very bad," he posted.

Congress's senior leader and former Union Minister P Chidambaram tweeted:

 

"Main bhi chowkidhar because the chowkidhar I had appointed is missing. I am told he has gone looking for achhe din," his tweet read.

Congress's Jyotiraditya Scindia questioned who would save the country if "chowkidars" were all like the Prime Minister.

Rahul Gandhi, who has coined the "Chowkidar chor hai (the watchman is a thief)" slogan, alleges the government has negotiated an overpriced deal to help Anil Ambani's rookie defence firm bag an offset contract from Dassault, the manufacturer of the aircraft. However, the government and Dassault have both denied the allegation.

 

On Sunday, minutes after PM Modi added "Chowkidar" to his twitter title, BJP leaders and ministers followed suit. From Union minister Arun Jaitley to party chief Amit Shah, and even foreign minister Sushma Swaraj, added "Chowkidar" to their Twitter handles.

 

Along with Congress, the leaders of other parties took a dig at PM Modi and his party.
