Uddhav Thackeray borrows Rahul's dig, says 'Chowkidaar chor haain'

Pandharpur, Dec 24 (IBNS): Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray on Monday borrowed Congress President Rahul Gandhi's dialogue to target the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and said "Chowkidaar chor haai."

He made the comment while addressing a rally in Maharashtra's Pandharpur.

In a different context Thackeray attacked the BJP and said: "Lime tree is used to make pesticide...however, a farmer told me that the same tree has got infected..So I told him security persons have become thieves today."

Continuing his attack on Narendra Modi over the controversial Rafale deal (buying of 36 fighter jets by India), Rahul Gandhi had earlier called the Prime Minister a "thief".

Rahul, who was campaigning in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, had said: "Chowkidar is a thief. When I questioned him why price was increased from ₹526Cr to ₹1670Cr, he had no answer. He couldn't meet my eyes."

While campaigning for 2014 General Elections, Modi had asked people to vote him to power to get a "chowkidar (watchman)" and not a Prime Minister.

Referring to former French President Francois Holande, who said the Indian government had urged France to nominate industrialist Anil Ambani's Reliance Defence Industries as its partner in the Rafale deal by India, Rahul had said: "PM goes to France and changes the deal and gives it to Anil Ambani. French President admits that Govt of India gave them no choice but to choose Anil Ambani's company. This is a ₹30000Cr theft."
