Leaders, party workers attend PM’s address as part of Main Bhi Chowkidar campaign
The Prime Minister Narendra Modi defined the word ‘Chowkidar’ in front of the nation and said that every citizen of the nation who is connected to any work is also a chowkidar. The chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat said this while interacting with media persons after attending the address of the prime minister as part of the ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ campaign here on Sunday.
Talking to the media persons, Rawat said that the prime minister had clarified the concept of a chowkidar in front of the people of the nation. He had said that every citizen involved in any work is also a chowkidar because the task of nation building is achieved with the cooperation of every section of society.
Responding to a question pertaining to corruption, the chief minister said that corruption starts from the top. As in the Centre, the office of the chief minister and secretariat in the state should also be “cleaned” first, said Rawat. Action against corruption is bound to cause discomfort to those who were influenced by the atmosphere during the Congress-government era. However, the situation is changing now. Rejecting the allegations leveled by the Congress, the chief minister said that leveling such baseless allegations is part of the Congress’ habits. However, now the Congress itself appears to be shrinking and its leadership is becoming hard to spot, added the chief minister.
Earlier, a large number of party office bearers and workers attended the programme addressed via video-link by the prime minister as part of the ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ campaign. Along with Rawat, the Union minister and BJP State Lok Sabha election in-charge Thaawar Chand Gehlot also attended this programme.
Speaking on the occasion, the BJP acting state president Naresh Bansal said that the prime minister Narendra Modi and chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat had acted sternly against corruption. Stumped by this, the Congress started calling chowkidar names. The people of Uttarakhand will give a befitting reply to such opposition by elected BJP candidates from all the five parliamentary constituencies of the state, he opined.
