Rahul Gandhi’s oft-repeated ‘chowkidar chor hai’ jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi has miffed the security guards association, which has demanded the Mumbai police to file a case against the Congress president.

The Maharashtra Rajya Suraksha Rakshak Union submitted an application at the Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) police station in Mumbai Monday, claiming the remark was an "insult" to security guards, PTI quoted a police official as saying.

The association has claimed that during his rally at the MMRDA grounds here earlier this month, Gandhi said that "chowkidar chor hai" (the guard is the thief), police said.

The Union president Sandeep Ghuge said police should register an offence against Gandhi to stop "such kind of slogans insulting the security guards."

Gandhi has been repeatedly hurling the "chowkidar chor hai" jibe at Modi to claim irregularities and favouritism in the Rafale deal, a charge the BJP-led government has rejected.
