Amid Congress, President Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Chowkidar chor hai’ jibe against Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his election campaign, the security guards association has asked Mumbai police to file a case against the Congress president.
According to the Maharashtra Rajya Suraksha Rakshak Union submitted an application at the Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) police station here Monday, claiming the remark was an “insult” to security guards.
The association has claimed that during his rally at the MMRDA grounds here earlier this month, Gandhi said that “chowkidar chor hai” (the guard is the thief), police said.
NewsMobile recently talked to a few security guards in the national capital about how they feel when Rahul Gandhi say ‘Chowkidar chor hai’; this is how they reacted:
Meanwhile, the Union president Sandeep Ghuge said police should register an offence against Gandhi to stop “such kind of slogans insulting the security guards.”
Gandhi has been repeatedly hurling the “chowkidar chor hai” jibe at Modi to claim irregularities and favouritism in the Rafale deal, a charge the BJP-led government has rejected.
