Rahul Gandhi claims ‘Modilie’ is a new English Word, Oxford Dictionaries say ‘Fake News’

It is not the first time that Rahul has been called out for fake attribution. Recently, the Supreme Court had slammed the Congress President for falsely attributing the 'Chowkidar Chor Hai' jibe to them.

The official Twitter handle of the Oxford Dictionaries has called out Rahul Gandhi’s tweet which claimed that a new word ‘Modilie’ has been added to the dictionaries which, as per Rahul Gandhi, means ‘constantly modifying the truth’.

The tweet says, “We can confirm that the image showing the entry ‘Modilie’ is fake and it does not exist in any of our dictionaries.”

Rahul had tweeted the image yesterday, aimed as a jibe against PM Modi, claiming that the word has been recently added to the English dictionary.

It is not the first time that Rahul has been called out for fake attribution. Recently the Supreme Court had slammed the Congress President for falsely attributing the ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’ jibe to them. Rahul had to submit an unconditional apology for the same.

Twitter users have reacted hilariously to the Oxford Dictionaries calling out Rahul’s attempt to invent a new word and failing miserably at it.

Congress’ official handle and Rahul Gandhi have been caught numerous times spreading blatant lies and misinformation. After Oxford calling out his recent lie, it remains to be seen how long Congress and its supporters take to claim that it was only a joke and their prince did not really mean it.
