PM's Twitter handle is now 'Chowkidar Narendra Modi'; top BJP leaders follow suit

A day after kick-starting the ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ campaign ahead of crucial Lok Sabha polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday renamed his Twitter account to ‘Chowkidar Narendra Modi’.

Soon after, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah also renamed his Twitter handle to ‘Chowkidar Amit Shah’.

Following the footsteps of their leaders, Union Ministers Piyush Goyal, Jagat Prakash Nadda, Harsh Vardhan and Dharmendra Pradhan added the prefix ‘Chowkidar’ to their Twitter handles.

On Saturday, the Prime Minister had tweeted a video showing how all Indians are chowkidars while flagging off the BJP’s poll campaign.

“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,” he tweeted.

The origin of the word ‘chowkidar’ dates back to the poll campaigning ahead of the 2014 general elections when Modi had promised to work as a ‘chowkidar’ to guard the people’s money and their trust once elected to the top office.

Several BJP chief ministers, including Uttarakhand CM Trivdendra Singh Rawat and Jharkhand CM Raghubar Das, also changed their names on Twitter.

Prime Minister Modi is slated to interact with people from across the country on March 31 as a part of this campaign.
