Rahul Gandhi’s strategy to defeat Prime Minister Modi in the upcoming General Elections appears to involve a lot of lies, then some more lies and then a few more. When the lies fall short, as the spokesperson of his ally JD(S) admitted recently, the Congress President’s strategy appears to be to lie some more again.
With a remarkable frequency, Rahul Gandhi has spread one lie after another about the Rafale deal, often repeating the lies over and over again. It has led to speculations that it might have had something to do with the fact that he has links with arms dealers who were lobbying for the Rafale jet’s competitors.
Today, at a rally at Uttarakhand, Rahul Gandhi repeated one of his other lies. He claimed that Narendra Modi was busy filming in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack while he had canceled all his appointments. He had made the same claim on Twitter the previous month.
पुलवामा में 40 जवानों की शहादत की खबर के तीन घंटे बाद भी ‘प्राइम टाइम मिनिस्टर’ फिल्म शूटिंग करते रहे।

In reality, as we had reported earlier, the Prime Minister had completed his visit to the forest an hour before the terror attack happened and had only spent half an hour there. The photographs of Modi’s visit to the Corbett National Park was already published by media around 2 PM that day, which indicates that the photos were obviously taken before 2 PM. And as Modi spent only about half an hour in the forest area, it means he had already returned from his forest visit before verified information about the attack could have reached him. Therefore, the allegation that PM Modi was doing a photo shoot in the forest after the Pulwama attack is a lie, which adds to the never-ending list of lies being peddled by Rahul Gandhi.
As it turns out, it was Rahul Gandhi himself who was spotted dancing shortly after the Pulwama terror attack. A video of him dancing was uploaded by the official Twitter handle of the Congress party itself. However, it was soon deleted by the Congress party.
