Showing a video of Rahul's speech in Manipur and that of the Prime Minister at a rally in Uttar Pradesh, the Congress leader said it is more than apparent in the video that Modi is trying to mislead the nation and people of Uttar Pradesh.
The Congress on Thursday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for "misleading" the people of the country with his blatant lies. "Pineapple" was then changed to "Coconut" mistakenly by some media houses who quoted Rahul Gandhi, "I would also want when someone drinks coconut juice in London and sees "Made in Manipur" is written on it". Healso ridiculed Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for his comments about selling "coconut juice of Manipur in London".
Congress communications incharge Randeep Singh Surjewala said, "Blatant lies, jumlas and disinformation have become the hallmark of India's Prime Minister".
"The truth is that Modiji does not speak the truth".
The importance of the area comprising 89 constituencies, which go to polls in 14 districts of on March 4 and 8, is strengthened by the fact that the prime minister is scheduled to address public meetings in Jaunpur, Mirzapur and Varanasi on March 3, 4 and 5, respectively.
"There is a Congress leader, and I want to pray for his long life". The poorest of poor child knows that it is coconut water, not juice. There he told farmers that he would extract juice from coconuts and send it to London.
The election campaign in five states, including Uttar Pradesh and Manipur, that are voting to elect new assemblies has largely been bitter. "Modiji has lowered the dignity of the office of Prime Minister and he should be ashamed about it", he added.
"Modiji has waived off loans worth Rs 1,40,000 crore of the 50 rich families of the country, but has betrayed the farmers and the youth", said Gandhi during a public rally here.
