Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday lashed out at the media for allegedly stirring hate against him with their "cunning twisting of facts". He said he was honoured they made their livelihood spinning lies about him.
Gandhi took to Twitter to express his criticism of the media and cited the 'Cobrapost' sting operation, allegedly revealing that 17 media firms were “ready to push communal reports for cash” without even raising a bill for it.
"I can never hate those who try to stir up hate against me, with fake stories and their cunning twisting of facts. For them it's just business; hate sold for a price, as the Cobrapost expose shows," Gandhi said on Twitter.
"I'm blessed and honoured that they make their livelihoods spinning lies about me," he added.
The Cobrapost sting operation is codenamed “Operation 136”.
