Rahul Gandhi tweets fake photoshopped screenshot targeting PM Modi: Oxford Dictionaries fact-checks him

New Delhi: Congress President Rahul Gandhi Thursday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of speaking lies, and mentioned about a website that he claimed “catalogues the best ‘Modilies'”.

Gandhi said “Modilies” is a new word that has become popular worldwide.

“There’s a new word in the English Dictionary. Attached is a snapshot of the entry :)” the Congress president tweeted, along with a Oxford dictionary website look-a-like photoshopped screenshot in attempt to make a point that top online dictionary has now mentioned a word ‘Modilies’.

In the fabricated page, “Modilie” was described as a “mass noun”.

The photoshopped page listed three meanings and examples of the usage of the word.

Reacting to this, Oxford Dictionaries replied Rahul Gandhi on Twitter: “We can confirm that the image showing the entry ‘Modilie’ is fake and does not exist in any of our Oxford Dictionaries.”
