Taking potshots at ruling Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said "if BJP had a film franchise, it would be called Lie Hard".
"The entire foundation of the BJP is based on lies. The whole architecture of the BJP is about lies.. Their model is to come up with a lie, spread that lie, and just keep repeating that lie until people believe the lie," he said.
Meanwhile, the saffron party today accused the Congress chief of indulging in cheap barbs and lowering political discourse in his bid to gain power. "Rahul Gandhi, is this the low level of political discourse that you are capable of? To gain power by all means, would you indulge in such cheap barbs?", party spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao asked in a tweet.
Gandhi's remarks come in the wake of the 2G spectrum allocation case court verdict on Thursday and the Adarsh Society case order passed by the Bombay High Court on Friday.
