The mission of this chowkidar is to wipe out terrorism, corruption, illness and poverty.

"Your chowkidar is working day and night to fulfil your aspirations. We are working for the poor and our schemes are designed with them in mind. Every person will get the respect he deserves," he said.

Modi listed out programmes launched by his government such as the free gas connections Ujjwala Scheme, the National Health Protection Scheme or Ayushman Bharat, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana and rural electrification scheme.
