Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday launched a fresh attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi by sharing a screenshot of new dictionary meaning of a word ‘Modilie.’ Taking to Twitter, the Congress president wrote, “There’s a new word in the English Dictionary. Attached is a snapshot of the entry :).”
The screen shot shared by Gandhi was similar to that of the Oxford dictionary website but its original logo was absent. The world ‘Modilie’ was termed as a noun, which meant ‘To constantly Modify the truth.’ One of the examples given was ‘He is such a Modiliar.’ Other explanations of the word included ‘To lie incessantly and habitually’ and ‘To lie without respite.’
Among other examples were ‘He just keeps Modilying’ and ‘Look look there goes a Modiliar.’

Gandhi had in the past launched a similar attack on Union Minister Arun Jaitley by twisting his surname to ‘Jaitlie’ implying that he too lied frequently. Gandhi’s decision to take a dig at Modi with the ‘dictionary meaning’ of ‘Modilie’ evoked angry reactions from his political rivals while his supporters simply loved his wit.
Big achievement for honorable Prime Chowkidar.
3rd standard fail hone ke bawajood ModiG ne kamaal kar diya.

Everything that Rahul is he accuses Modi of. In psychology this is called projection.
Rahul is corrupt, so he wants to show Modi is corrupt.
Rahul is a compulsive liar, so he project that on Modi. 😏
Majra kya hai.
Modi hardly pays him any attention though,.

So a person who keeps saying Chowkidar Chor Hai and apologises for the same in the Supreme Court is trust worthy and someone else is a liar

Gandhi has in excess of 5 million followers on Twitter, where he has often outsmarted Modi particularly since he has become the party president. His tweets often leave a far bigger footprint than even Modi, who has nearly 50 million followers on the microblogging site.
