Jodhpur: Addressing a rally in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, PM Narendra Modi on Monday rubbished all allegations by the Congress. In fact, he claimed, the Congress  has turned into an institution adept at spreading falsehoods. He said, “Jhooth phailane mein Congress ek aisi university bann gayi hai,aisa vidyalaya bann gaya hai jahan pravesh karte hi jhooth ki PhD ka adhyayan shuru ho jata hai. Jo zyada mark leke jhooth bolne mein paarangat ho jata hai usey naye pad aur padvi di jaati hai (Congress is like an institution where one gets a PhD in lying as soon as one enrols. Whoever is better at lying is felicitated).” (Also read: ‘God Forbid The Day we Have to Learn Meaning of Hinduism From You,’ Says BJP)

Rebutting Congress chief Rahul Gandhi’s allegation that he did not know much about the foundation of Hinduism, PM Modi said, “Abhi chunaav mein wo keh rahe hain ki Modi ko Hindu ka koi gyaan nahi hai. Modi ko gyaan hai ya nahi, Rajasthan mein iske mudde pe vote daalna hai kya? Rajasthan ko bijli, paani, sadak ke liye vote chahiye ki Modi ko Hindu ka gyaan hai ya nahi uspe vote chahiye (While campaigning, he claimed that Modi doesn’t know about Hinduism. But will people in Rajasthan vote on the basis of my knowledge of Hinduism? Will Rajasthan vote over power, water and roads or over whether I know about Hinduism?)”

As far as the knowlege of Hinduism was concerned, PM Modi said, Rishi-muniyon ne bhi kabhi daawa nahi kiya ki unko Hindu aur Hindutva ka poodatra gyaan hai. Ye itna vishal hai ki iss poore gyaan ko sametna insaan ke bas ki baat nahi hai. Iss gyaan ka bhandaar mere paas hai main aisa daawa kabhi nis ahi kar sakta,naamdar kar sakte hain (Even saints never claimed that they knew everything about Hindu and Hindutva. It is such a vast area that grasping all the knowledge is not humanly possible. I cannot claim that I have complete knowledge of it but the naamdaar (Rahul) can claim so.”
