New Delhi: A day after launching the ‘Mein Bhi Chowkidar’ campaign, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday renamed his twitter handle to “Chowkidar Narendra Modi”. He also urged supporters to take the #MainBhiChowkidar pledge against corruption.
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

‘Mein Bhi Chowkidar’ campaign has been launched with an aim of taking a jibe at Congress president Rahul Gandhi who has unleashed a ‘chowkidar chor hai’ campaign at his election rallies to sully the image of Modi.
Rahul has been targetting the PM over the Rafale deal with the ‘chowkidar chor hai’ narrative.
To boost the campaign, the prime minister’s twitter handle has begun sending out automated “thank you” tweets to every Twitter handle that had used the #MainBhiChowkidar hashtag. While many Twitter users expressed joy at receiving what seemed like a personalised message from Narendra Modi
