Narendra Modi is a serial liar: Congress

Friday, 2 May 2014 - 3:35pm IST | Place: New Delhi | Agency: IANS

The Congress party on Friday called Narendra Modi a "serial liar" following the BJP leader's reported reference to Congress leader Ahmed Patel as a good friend in an interview to Doordarshan.

"It (Modi's comments) establishes beyond doubt that he is constantly spreading lies with a clear purpose of misleading the people, the party and the country," Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha told IANS.

He added that Modi has a "laundry list" of having made distortions in his public speeches. "His comment is a brazen lie. He is a serial liar," Jha added.

Modi, in his interview to Doordarshan that had been edited out, had reportedly referred to party chief Sonia Gandhi's political secretary Ahmed Patel as a good friend who has stopped taking his calls.

Jha added, "Even Patel is aware of the fact that Modi is deliberately misleading the media, the nation and the people."
