Watchman will be ever alert: Modi

Watchman will be ever alert: Modi

Kicking off the Bharatiya Janata Party's Lok Sabha campaign in Mahar-ashtra, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday targeted the Cong-ress, accusing it of corruption and warned that this Chowkidar (watchman) will never sleep and continue to catch thieves.

"Should the 'chowkidar' go ahead courageously or not? He never sleeps. However dark it may be, he goes to catch thieves. It is your blessings which gives him the strength to do this and he (chowkidar) will continue undeterred in the fight against graft. He will make them accountable for every paise belonging to the country," Modi thundered at a public rally.

"Those who believed that power was their 'dynastic right' is now in the docks facing various corruption charges, ranging from tax evasion to commissions in defense deals.

Our government has stopped all this. They are panicky and trying to scare me," Modi said. He said the recently deported James Christian Michel had made many "shocking revelations" and according to media reports he was also lobbying for other companies' fighter jets.
