New Delhi | The Congress on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of taking inspiration from Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels while speaking about the party's Nyay Patra for the Lok Sabha elections.

Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh said, "For his MA in Entire Political Science, Mr. Narendra Modi must definitely have read Joseph Goebbels on the value of propaganda and taken inspiration from him." He noted that Goebbels had stated that "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."

Ramesh said he also wrote in 1941 that "The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big and stick to it." Goebbels was the propaganda minister of German ruler Adolf Hitler.

"In his latest interview to a TV channel, which is being headlined, the outgoing PM has yet again blatantly, brazenly and shamelessly lied about the Congress's Nyay Patra. It once again proves that Mr.Modi's motto has always been 'Asatyameva Jayate.'

Truth is slaughtered every time he speaks," the Congress leader alleged. The Congress later used the Hindi saying, "Jhooth Bole Kauwa Kaate" to attack the prime minister and alleged that the he stands completely exposed on the inheritance tax issue.

"The Congress's Nyay Patra does not contain any mention, direct or indirect, of an inheritance tax. On the other hand - His ministerial drumbeaters, party social media figures and corporate personalities advocated it," he said in his post.

The Congress leader claimed that between 2017 and 2019 the Modi Government seriously considered the proposal, with even his Finance Minister praising it publicly.

"Now one of his top economic advisors has said he is in favour of an income distribution survey but after the elections! Wow.Come on outgoing PM. At least in the closing few days of your miserable tenure shock the country by stopping the tsunami of lies," Ramesh alleged.
