New Delhi, March 4

The BJP on Monday rallied around Prime Minister Narendra Modi as its leaders suffixed their names on social media profiles with "Modi Ka Parivar", a day after RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav took a jibe at him for having no family.

Union ministers Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, Nitin Gadkari and Nirmala Sitharaman, and BJP chief JP Nadda were joined by party members from across the country in declaring themselves as "Modi Ka Parivar (Modi's family)" on their social media accounts, as the ruling party launched a sharp counterattack on the opposition.

Many Modi-supporting social media users also made the same change on their pages.

On the 2019 Lok Sabha poll eve all top BJP leaders had similarly changed their profiles to say "Mai bhi chowkidar " as a counter to then Congress president Rahul Gandhi's "chowkidar Chor hai" jibe at the PM.

The change of social media names by leaders like BJP chief JP Nadda, union home minister Amit Shah and other senior leaders and ministers of the ruling party follows PM's frequent description of people as 'mere Parvivarjano' (my family members) in public meetings and events.

The BJP seeks to make Modi the single top election campaign point of the party, and expand Modi ki guarantee plank further.
