The left-leaning Media and its ‘journalists’ like Rajdeep Sardesai, have been openly and pathologically biased against Prime Minister Narendra Modi ever since he was the Chief Minister of Gujarat. The unabashed hatred is such that senior “journalists” shamelessly twist his statements and words to further a narrative that per them, goes against Narendra Modi and favours their agenda.
Today, Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack on the Congress party and its scion Rahul Gandhi. The PM said that the very people who coined the term ‘Hindu terror’ and branded a peace-loving people as terrorists are today running away from a Hindu majority seat (Amethi) and contesting from a Hindu-minority seat (Wayanad).
This attack was as scathing as one could have expected from PM Modi in the run-up to 2019 elections. However, staying true to their pathological anti-Modi hatred, some “journalists” couldn’t digest the full-frontal assault on their favourite dynasty.
Rajdeep Sardesai, the “journalist” who had once said that the Parliament attack back in 2000 actually “excited him” took to Twitter to shamelessly twist PM Narendra Modi’s statement.
Rajdeep Sardesai said that the Prime Minister was playing “us vs them” politics by saying that “Rahul Gandhi did not dare contest from a seat where WE are in majority but where WE are in minority”. He specifically wrote that this was PM Modi’s statement and even put the word ‘we’ under single quotes to emphasise the use of the word.
He then said that he thought the Prime Minister represents “all of us” and hinted that perhaps this statement of the Prime Minister is an attempt to divide people on the basis of ‘us vs them’.
However, the word that Rajdeep Sardesai laid so much emphasis on was never used by the Prime Minister in his speech while making these statements.

If one listens to the speech by Prime Minister Modi, he mentions how the Congress demonised Hindus by blaming them for terrorism and coining the phrase “Hindu terror”. He says that this narrative was demolished by the courts and thus, Congress does not have the courage to fight from a constituency where Hindus are in majority.
This is not something that the Prime Minister has concocted either. In a sting video that was put out by Times Now, Congress leader had himself admitted that Rahul Gandhi was choosing Wayanad as a second “safe seat” because it was a constituency with a minority Hindu population.
It is thus intriguing why Rajdeep would so blatantly twist the Prime Minister’s statements when a video of his speech is available. Rajdeep not only twisted his statements but even highlighted the erroneous part by putting the word ‘we’ in single quotes.
Perhaps Rajdeep assumes that the handful of people who still consider him a credible voice are so uneducated and uninformed that they would lap up the garbage he regurgitates every now and then, or, his Modi hate is so deafening that he fails to paraphrase a statement correctly. Either way, Rajdeep has done what he does best: Brush away the concerns and sentiments of Hindus to play his politics and ensure that he scores a brownie point with the Dynasty he loves to revere.
Rajdeep’s shamelessness is rather legendary, to put it mildly, as is his love for the Gandhi family. Earlier, he had muddled up the meaning of ‘benami property’ in order to exonerate the Gandhi son-in-law Robert Vadra. He had even lied about Goa tourism being on the decline when actually, the numbers indicated otherwise. In his illustrious career that we had tracked, Rajdeep Sardesai can easily be awarded for being a serial fake news disseminater and shoddy journalist. One also recalls how he had shamelessly lied about the Supreme Court’s judgement about Rafale.
Through the years, Rajdeep Sardesai has worked extra hard to demonised Narendra Modi and pander to the Gandhi family. This latest example is just another addition to the long list of a saga called the Sardesai Shenanigans.
Update: After his misrepresentation was pointed out, Rajdeep first quote tweeted his incorrect tweet with the correct statement of the Prime Minister.
Exact PM quote:Cong insulted Hindus; leaders of that party are now scared of contesting in seats dominated by majority (Hindus);they are forced to seek refuge in seats where majority is minority.(correction: Not ‘we’ but majority/hindu). Is this communal rabble rousing or not? https://t.co/hJutpgYCKb

However, he maintained his narrative twist. Later, he deleted his old tweet where he had maliciously twisted the PM’s words.
