Congress-NCP leader celebrates his birthday with ‘Desh Ka Chowkidar Hi Chor Hai’ cake

According to an official affidavit submitted to Election Commission (EC), there are 14 criminal cases pending against Anand Paranjpe.

In one of the most bizarre birthday celebrations noticed recently, a Congress-NCP leader from Maharashtra celebrated his birthday with a ‘Desh ka Chowkidar Hi Chor Hai’ cake.

Anand Paranjpe, Congress-NCP alliance candidate representing the Thane constituency in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections celebrated his birthday by cutting a cake with ‘Desh ka Chowkidar Hi Chor Hai’ written on it.

Paranjpe had joined the NCP in the year 2014 after he quit the Shiv Sena. Interestingly, according to an official affidavit submitted to Election Commission (EC), there are 14 criminal cases pending against Anand Paranjpe.

The ‘Chowkidar chor hai’ jibe against PM Modi has been the slogan the Congress and its president have been obsessing over in the run-up to the elections.

Such has become the Congress’ obsession with this remark, that the party had launched advertisements titled ‘chowkidar chor hai’ as part of Madhya Pradesh’ election campaign amidst the ongoing Lok Sabha polls. The Election commission had, however, put a ban to it by calling it highly derogatory and defamatory.

Moreover, the Congress President in his habit of using the gag line had gone on to audaciously attribute the “Chowkidar Chor Hai” jibe to the Supreme court which had, in turn, become a major embarrassment for the grand old party.

Rahul Gandhi had to tender an unconditional apology in the Supreme Court for “unintentionally and inadvertently” attributing the ‘Chowkidar Chor hai’ jibe against Prime Minister Modi to the court’s order on Rafale Review plea.

Interestingly, PM Modi had kickstarted the 2019 Lok Sabha election campaign with launching ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ campaign, effectively turning the negative campaigning by Congress on its head.

Following this, senior BJP leaders, including party president Amit Shah, and Union ministers had prefixed their names on the microblogging site with ‘chowkidar’, which turned out be an instant hit as it became a mass movement spontaneously after lakhs of common people joined the campaign.
