‘Country Needs a Prime Minister, Not a Chowkidar’: Viral Video of Youth Slamming Modi

New Delhi Published 19 Mar 2019

A clip, from a debate show ‘Takkar’ on Hindi news channel Aaj Tak, is going viral on social media. In the video, a young man is seen strongly taking on the Prime Minster’s “Main Bhi Chowkidar” campaign.

Speaking from the audience, the youth is seen addressing the BJP spokesperson on the podium, telling him that, “At one time you tell the youth to sell pakodas, and at other times you talk about ‘chowkidar.’ Country needs an effective Prime Minster, not a chowkidar.”

The youth emphatically hits out at the PM for his constant reference to the “nothing was achieved in last seventy years.”

He adds, “when the PM was born, India had established the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education. And when he was playing gilli danda as a young boy, India had built the Bhakra Nangal dam.”

The “Main Bhi Chowkidar” campaign has come under criticism from several quarters immediately after it was launched by the PM. ( News Central )
