New Delhi: The BJP on Saturday took on the Congress for attacking the saffron party with a morphed image. It all began with the BJP’s latest campaign for the Lok Sabha elections #MainBhiChowkidar.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s original tweet on the campaign said, “Everyone who is fighting corruption, dirt, social evils is a Chowkidar…Today, every Indian is saying #MainBhiChowkidar.” Also Read - From West to East: Maharashtra’s Ruling Shiv Sena to Contest West Bengal Polls This Year
Soon, Congress got a morphed shot of the PM’s Twitter handle with messages from some parody accounts. One message was from @AmbaniKaChela and the other, from @NiiravModi which said, “Sir loan maaf karwaao sara.”
The BJP didn’t take too kindly to this ridicule at the hands of the Congress and tweeted, “Dear @INCIndia, Dishonesty, deceit, photoshopped images and fake news is your identity. For decades, your leaders have used those techniques to loot, plunder and ruin India. It is against this Congress culture that India stands vigilant and says- #MainBhiChowkidar.”
The BJP on Saturday officially launched its campaign for the Lok Sabha elections by turning the Congress’ favourite jibe of ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’ on its head and asking all citizens to take the #MainBhiChowkidar pledge.
