Congress functionary and self-proclaimed ‘political consultant and strategist’ Gaurav Pandhi today was caught sharing an edited portion of Prime Minister Modi’s rally in Patan, Gujarat today where he accused the PM of using derogatory and crass language. Gaurav is convenor of IT cell of Delhi Congress, and also works at the digital communications department of the party.
What kind of language is this Mr. PM? Does it beholds the Prime Minister of the country to use profanity and that too publicly? Shocking beyond belief !! Have some respect for the chair, if nothing else. ? pic.twitter.com/tVrHVbSlek

In the above video, strategically played on a loop, one can hear the PM use a word which sounds similar to an abusive term. However, the portion is taken completely out of context.
In the above clip, PM Modi says in Gujarati, “Loko em keh chhe bhavishya ma ladaiyo paani thavain chhe. Ala bhai badha koh chho paani ni ladai thavain chhe to pachhi ame atyar thi paani pehla paal kem na bandhiye?” (People are saying that in future the world will fight over water. If people are going to fight over water in future, why don’t we build a dam before such a crisis arise?)
The portion “thavain chhe” which means “will happen (or take place)” if put on loop very fast would sound like an abusive word. Much like playing the word ‘Pandhi’ on loop really, really fast could make it sound like ‘Pidi’.
Spreading misinformation is not a new task Pandhi excels in. Earlier too in the aftermath of Kerala floods last year, he was busy spreading misinformation and attacking the central government.
