PM Narendra Modi's war-cry for 2019: This Chowkidaar won't stop
On Saturday, the second day of BJP's National Executive meeting at Delhi's Ramlila Maidan, the top brass of the saffron party launched a blitzkrieg on the opposition with Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying 'the chowkidaar won't stop'.
Hitting out at the mahagathbandhan, PM Modi said they came together for a majboor (helpless) government but the citizens wanted a majboot (strong) government.

On 'Chowkidaar hi chor hai', PM Modi has a comeback

"It has happened for the first time in the history of the country that a government that came into power with an absolute majority hasn't been accused of corruption," he added.
PM Modi talks about two 'processes' to get loans
Continuing his attack, PM Modi claimed earlier there were two ways to secure loans: Common way and Congress' way.
He said while common people got loans through banks, Congress helped its 'greedy friends' and gave them loans. PM Modi added the Centre did away with this process.
On caste-agnostic reservations, PM Modi said it was for youth who were left behind in the race.
