Madhya Pradesh: Rahul Gandhi repeats the same debunked lie on Sardar Patel’s statue

Rahul Gandhi has been on the campaign trail for upcoming elections. Today, Rahul Gandhi is delivering a rally speech in Chitrakoot, Madhya Pradesh. Rahul Gandhi seems to be running out of lies to further because he has come a full circle and is now repeating the same lies over and over again.

During his rally in Chitrakoot, Rahul Gandhi said that Prime Minister Modi is making Sardar Patel’s statue in Gujarat and like our shirts and shoes, this statue too is going to be ‘Made in China’.

In the year 2015, Outlook had claimed that L&T had given the work of constructing the statue to a Chinese Foundry. The article mocked Modi’s “Make in India” campaign, by branding the Patel statue as “Made in China”. We had debunked this lie by Outlook in 2015 itself.

L&T had in fact issued two statements countering this baseless story. However, facts should not be allowed to get in the way of propaganda and Rahul Gandhi seems to firmly believe in that saying.

On 26th September 2017, Rahul Gandhi while speaking at a rally had repeated this long debunked lie and claimed that this move would end up providing jobs in China and not India. Then too, we had reiterated that this was a blatant lie. But since a lie repeated a thousand times becomes the truth, Rahul Gandhi has decided not to be deterred by pesky little facts.

He has repeated the same lie today in his Madhya Pradesh rally. Perhaps the most tragic part is that the media, which has repeatedly behaved like Nero’s guest, have maintained stoic silence as Rahul Gandhi repeats the same lie a thousand times. Perhaps it is the silence of the media that gives Rahul Gandhi the impunity necessary to lie blatantly and we won’t be surprised if he gets a free pass from the media this time as well.
