CNN Called Sushma Swaraj “Chowkidar” In An Article And People Can't Stop The Trolling

By Maliha Khan | 4 May, 2019

Remember a few months back, Indian Prime Minister Modi, released a “Main Bhi Chowkidar” Campaign to counter Rahul Gandhi’s slogan during elections that went as follows: “Chowkidar Chor Hai?” Modi got the opportunity to go just a mile further by encouraging people from his party to add the prefix “Chowkidar” in front of their names on Twitter.

Just look at his most recent tweet if you want evidence

This “Main Bhi Chowkidar” may have been introduced to support the party and its endeavors, but things don’t always work out like they are supposed to…

Recently, India’s Minister of External Affairs was referred to as “Chowkidar Sushma Swaraj” by one of the biggest American news publications.

In the article, CNN US mentions her by her Twitter handle. This article has caused some uproar, mainly in a mazakiya way.

Unki campaign ki mehnaat sab pani mai gayi

People want to point out ke yeh kaafi useless step tha

Confusion, confusion

Good question, very good question

But, of course, supporters stepped in and CNN ko sunane lagey

And some were happy ke international recognition mil gayi

I guess the campaign backfired
