The BJP on Sunday utilised Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "Main Bhi Chowkidar" address beamed across the country as a force multiplier of its poll campaign in New Delhi with party's top leaders fanning out across various Lok Sabha constituencies here to watch it along with thousands of party supporters. The top BJP leaders, who watched the prime minister's "Main Bhi Chowkidar" address in various New Delhi constituencies with thousands of party workers, supporters and common people included party president Amit Shah, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

Modi Sunday made his "Main Bhi Chowkidar" poll campaign speech on his You Tube channel at New Delhi Tal Katora Indoor stadium. The address was beamed across the country and watched live through video conferencing across the country. In New Delhi, Shah watched Modi's address in Chandni Chowk constituency, while Swaraj watched it in West Delhi and Singh in East Delhi along with the party cadres and common people.

Chandni Chowk MP and Union Minister Harsh Vardhan was also present with the party president in his constituency to watch the event. Though similar events were organised across different parts of the country, and attended by senior BJP leaders there, it was here that the several top leaders were present in different constituencies.

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, BJP's general secretary (organisation) Ramlal, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari and New Delhi MP Meenakshi Lekhi attended the event along with Modi. Union ministers Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and Vijay Goel also attended the event along with the prime minister.

BJP general secretary Ram Madhav and Vijender Gupta, the Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Legislative Assembly, watched the prime minister's address in Northwest Delhi along with local MP Udit Raj. The BJP, which had bagged all the seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi in 2014, is pitted against the Congress and the AAP here in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

The BJP, however, had won just three seats in the Delhi assembly polls held less than a year after the 2014 general elections.
