Rahul Gandhi says ‘Modilie’ added to dictionary, OED denies

New Delhi, May 16, 2019-
A day after Congress President Rahul Gandhi, mocking Prime Minister Narendra Modi, posted a snapshot that a new word “Modilie” has been added to English dictionaries, the authoritative Oxford English Dictionary on Thursday said that there no such word not exist in any of its dictionaries.

However, Gandhi continued to target the Prime Minister and tweeted on Thursday that “Modilie” is the new word that has become popular worldwide.

“Now there’s even a website that catalogues the best Modilies,” he said, sharing the address of the website listing alleged lies of Modi since he came to office in 2014.

On Wednesday, Gandhi had targeted Modi saying “Modilie” is the new word in the dictionary.

“There’s a new word in the English Dictionary. Attached is a snapshot of the entry,” he said in a tweet. Attached was a screen shot of a page of “English Living Dictionaries” describing the word “a mass noun” that means “to constantly Modify the truth, to lie incessantly and habitually and to lie without respite”. The meanings were followed by example sentences.

However, the OED said no such word exists.

“We can confirm that the image showing the entry ‘Modilie’ is fake and does not exist in any of our Oxford Dictionaries,” it posted from its official Twitter handle in reply to Gandhi’s tweet.

This led to Twitter users trolling the Congress President with some of them accusing him of resorting to lies.  (Agency)
