New Delhi: Taking a fresh swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said there’s a new word in the English dictionary — “Modilie”. Gandhi has been accusing Modi of speaking “lies” on various issues, including on the Rafale jet deal.

“There’s a new word in the English Dictionary. Attached is a snapshot of the entry,” he tweeted, ending his sentence with a smiley.
