I’m chowkidar of toilets: PM Modi hits campaign trail in Maharashtra’s Wardha


Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday landed in Maharashtra to campaign for the Lok Sabha elections. Speaking at an election rally in Wardha, PM Modi said he is the chowkidar of toilets and being a “toilet chowkidar” he is protecting the women of the country.

“I am a chowkidar of toilets and I’m proud of that. Being the chowkidar of toilets I protect the honour of crores of Hindustani women,” said PM Modi on Monday.

At the Maharashtra rally, Prime Minister Modi hit out at the Congress and NCP and said NCP chief Sharad Pawar was a farmer himself and now he has forgotten all farmers of Maharashtra.

In Maharashtra’s Wardha, PM Modi said, “Jo Hindustan ke hero hain unki zarurat hai ya jo Pakistan mein hero ban gaye hain unki? Aapko sabut chahiye ya desh ke sabuto pe garv? Yeh vahi Congress-NCP ka gathbandhan hai jisne Azad Maidan mein bheed ko shaheedo ke smarak ko jute se raundne ki chhut di thi.”

(“Do you want people who is the hero of India or those who are being the heroes in Pakistan? Do you want evidence or do you want to be proud of the evidence? This is the same Congress-NCP’s alliance that trampled the shaheed smarak at Azad Maidan”)

The Prime Minister also congratulated the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) for successfully launching the EMISAT intelligence satellite along with 28 other customer satellites from other nations.

India’s EMISAT satellite and 28 foreign nano satellites were Monday successfully launched onboard ISRO’s trusted workhorse Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre.

PM Modi said, “First of all I would like to congratulate our space scientists and ISRO for their achievement. By successfully launching PSLVC45, more than 2 dozen of satellites from 5 countries were sent to space.”
