Taking a dig at BJP’s Main Bhi Chowkidar campaign, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal said on March 20 that if people want their children to become watchmen, they should vote for Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

And if they want good education, they should vote for Aam Aadmi Party, he said. Kejriwal, in a tweet in Hindi, said Modi wants the whole country to try and become chowkidar (watchman). “If people want their children to become chowkidar, they should vote for Modi but if they want their child to get good education and become doctor, engineer or lawyer, they should vote for AAP,” he tweeted.

Modi on March 16 urged his supporters to take the Main Bhi Chowkidar (I too am watchman) pledge, saying he is not alone in the fight against graft and social evils. Since then, the BJP has stepped up its Main Bhi Chowkidar campaign with the Prime Minister and other party leaders, including president Amit Shah, prefixing the word chowkidar to their names in their Twitter profiles as they sought people’s support in the Lok Sabha elections.
