Rahul Gandhi taunts PM Modi yet again with ‘chowkidar’ jibe

SNS | New Delhi |

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday slammed the government over reports of various leaks, including the CBSE examination paper leak and electoral poll date leak in Karnataka.

In a tweet, Gandhi listed five leaks – Data leak, Aadhar leak, CBSE leak, SSC leak and Election date leak — and asserted that the watchman (Prime Minister Narendra Modi who had once described himself as the country’s “chowkidar”) is weak.


The latest ‘reports of leaks’ that has left the country in a shock have come from the CBSE. The education board on 28 March announced that two board exams – Class 10 (mathematics) and Class 12 (economics) – will be re-conducted. The decision came in the wake of the reports of paper leak. The new dates have not been given yet.

He also raked up the Karnataka Assembly polls dates leak pertaining to BJP IT-cell head Amit Malviya’s tweet about the polls dates even before the dates were actually announced by the Election Commission.

This is not for the first time that the Gandhi scion used the ‘Chowkidar’ rhetoric to taunt the prime minister.

In February, Rahul Gandhi had sharpened his attack on PM Modi during his campaign in poll-bound Karnataka, as he had asked why Narendra Modi was “silent” on the PNB fraud.

“Modi ji comes to Karnataka and speaks about corruption. He had told the country not to make him prime minister but make him the chowkidar (watchman) of the country,” Mr Gandhi had said.
