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.

Gandhi also put up a picture of a screenshot of a photo-shopped page of an English dictionary explaining the meaning of "Modilie".In the fabricated page, "Modilie" is described as a "mass noun".

The photo-shopped page lists three meanings and examples of the usage of the word. 

Responding to the development, BJP MP GVL Narasimha Rao attacked the Congress president saying that nobody is taking Rahul Gandhi seriously and he has become a troll on social media. 

"It clearly shows that Rahul Gandhi cannot speak to his own words. Only yesterday, one heard a comment from Rahul Gandhi, saying that 'let's not going down to accusing rival'. And now within 24 hours, you see Rahul Gandhi who is the chief of the 'Gaali gang' of the Congress party. This is nothing but completely fake allegation. And this cheap level which the Congress party's campaign has regenerated in this elections, I think nobody is taking him seriously. He is nothing but a troll on social media," GVL Rao said.
