New Delhi: A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged supporters to take the #MainBhiChowkidar pledge against corruption, the PM changed his name on Twitter to ‘Chowkidar’, with BJP chief Amit Shah and several Union ministers following suit.
Union Ministers Piyush Goyal, following the suit, wrote, "As Chowkidars of our nation, we are committed to creating a clean economy by using cashless financial transactions."

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.
Today, every Indian is saying-#MainBhiChowkidar
The campaign comes amid Congress president Rahul Gandhi's repeated attacks on PM Modi and his government over the Rafale jet deal, with the slogan, "Chowkidar Chor Hai (watchman is a thief)".
