Know why Modi is no more Chowkidar

New Delhi, May 23: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday dropped the 'Chowkidar' (watchman) prefix from his official Twitter handle and urged BJP leaders to do the same.

"Keep this spirit alive at every moment and continue working for India's progress. The word 'Chowkidar' goes from my Twitter name but it remains an integral part of me. Urging you all to do the same too," he added.

In March, Modi tweeted a video with the hashtag '#MainBhiChowkidar' (I am also a watchman) and called all those a watchman who are fighting corruption, dirt, social evils and are working for the progress of India.

Soon after, the Prime Minister added 'Chowkidar' prefix to his Twitter handle, and several BJP leaders followed.
