Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday described Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a “chowkidar” (watchman) who guards the interests of only 15 corrupt persons and not that of the country at large,
Addressing election rallies in Bundelkhand region in Madhya Pradesh, Gandhi said: “I want to make direct relation with crores of farmers, small traders, youth, sisters and mothers, and I won’t lie to them as I know that relationships can’t be based on falsehood. But Narendra Modi thinks otherwise…he lies and spreads hatred all around.
“He is ‘chowkidar’ for only 15 corrupt persons and guards their interests. I am yours, while Modi is theirs. He wants to create two Indias — one of the poor, farmers and unemployed youth, and the other of the corrupt.”
