Earlier, in the run up to the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday started the "Main Bhi Chowkidar" campaign, calling everyone who were fighting corruption, social evils and working hard for the progress of India, as watchmen.
"Your Chowkidar is standing firm and 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," Modi said in a series of tweets. "Today, every Indian is saying. Main Bhi Chowkidar," he added. This campaign by the PM is followed by his series of tweets in which he tagged over 100 people from the fields of politics, sports, Bollywood, arts and various walks of life to encourage people to come out and vote in large numbers.
