Congress president Rahul Gandhi, who has been repeatedly taking the "chowkidar chor hai"(watchman is the thief) jibe at Prime Minister Modi to claim irregularities and favouritism in the Rafale fighter jet deal on Monday mocked Modi's "main bhi chowkidar" campaign and said that after getting caught, the prime minister has turned the whole country into "chowkidars".

Addressing a public rally in Kalaburagi, north Karnataka, he said Modi had told the people to make him a "chowkidar" and not the prime minister but was now turning the whole country into "chowkidars."

"Whose chowkidari has he done?" the Congress president asked, alleging Modi had only helped Anil Ambani, Mehu Chowksy and Nirav Modi, a charge vehemently being denied by the BJP and the government.

Modi had on Saturday urged his supporters to take the "main bhi chowkidar" (I too am watchman) pledge, saying he is not alone in the fight against graft and social evils.

He also posted a little over three-minute video to drive home his message.

The prime minister has often described himself as a "chowkidar" who would neither allow corruption nor get corrupted himself.

Modi and other BJP leaders, including party president Amit Shah, prefixed the word "chowkidar" to their names in their Twitter profile Sunday as they sought people's support in the Lok Sabha elections.

Gandhi also alleged that the target of Modi was to abolish the Constitution just as he scrapped the old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes during the demonetisation exercise.
