Congress party has hit back hard at Prime Minister Narendra Modi after he accused  Rajiv Gandhi of using warship INS Viraat as a “personal taxi” for a family holiday, saying he is spreading “canards and lies” due to “imminent defeat”.

Lies, propaganda and canards can never succeed beyond a very short shelf-life. Truth has to triumph. Howsoever much the ‘Bahut Jhooth Party’ will try to spread disinformation, the people of India know the truth,” Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi told reporters , alleging Modi was spreading “lies” about former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi but people of India will not be swayed by such statements.

The Congress leader accused Modi of “demeaning” the office of Prime Minister and said “you have regressed far from progressing”.

Congress communications in- charge Randeep Singh Surjewala cited a media report to attack the prime minister.

“Distraction and fakery is your last resort. You have made Indian Air Force jets your own Taxi! You have paid as low as Rs 744 for using IAF jets for election trips!” Surjewala tweeted.

“Scared of your own sins haunting you, you are shamelessly pointing fingers at others!” he said, in an apparent reference to Modi’s allegation against Rajiv Gandhi.

Surjewala also tweeted the comments made by former navy chiefs
