The Lok Sabha Election 2019 will surely make its way down in the history as BJP yet again emerges as the ruling party of the nation. While the nation has already chosen Mr. Narendra Modi for the throne in these elections, a part of credit surely goes to their super spontaneous Marketing and PR team who did not only plan but also ensured successful execution of their brilliant strategies.
While Mr. Modi is yet again booming on Twitter’s trending list here’s to all the efforts the party has made in reaching out to its audience through digital media.
#MainBhiChowkidar The Viral Campaign
#MaiBhiChowkidar the viral campaign launched by BJP instantly shot up on the Twitter trends and became a hot topic to talk about on all social media. With bang on marketing skills Twitter saw all its BJP ministers and supporters add the prefix Chowkidar to their name on social media. The campaign was indeed a marketing masterstroke.
Your Chowkidar is standing firm & serving the nation.
But, I am not alone.
Everyone who is fighting corruption, dirt, social evils is a Chowkidar.
Everyone working hard for the progress of India is a Chowkidar.
Today, every Indian is saying-#MainBhiChowkidar
