Following the launch of the BJP’s ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ Campaign on 17 March, Twitter users everywhere changed their handles to include the word “Chowkidar” (watchman) as a honorific. We saw it first on Modi’s own Twitter handle, then came Amit Shah and Bros., followed by scores of people “committed to a strong and prosperous India”. (Except Bhartiya Janta Party MP Subramanian Swamy, who reportedly said, “I cannot become a Chowkidar because I am Brahmin. Brahmins can’t be chowkidars. It’s a fact.”)
Anti-national libtard comedian Kunal Kamra, often accused of being paid by the opposing parties to trashtalk the BJP and PM Modi, finally came to his senses and followed suit to show his support. In fact, he went a step further; he not only prefixed “Chowkidar” to his name on Twitter, but also changed his profile photo:
Kamra then demanded on the social media platform, “BJP IT Cell, where is my money?” There was no public response. However, sources close to the source have confirmed that the comedian received an envelope containing Rs 4,20,000 via India Post shortly after, as social media influencer fee. According to reports, he plans to spend the amount later this month on 20 April for an undisclosed project.
Dead Ant reached out to him for a comment. “Excuse me?” he exclaimed in response, pretending to be in an area with poor mobile network coverage. “What’s the date today?” we heard him crackling through the phone, before we “lost signal”.
