Related to a newly coined word 'Modilie'.

Is a word 'Modilie' which means to constantly modify the truth and also has some alternative meanings, is actually a neologism or a machination devised by Rahul Gandhi to accuse the Prime Minister of India for lying to citizens and not fulfilling promises made by him?

    Hi @akumar694
    I think you are referring to a tweet showing this word as if being from our dictionary.
    We can confirm that the image showing the entry 'Modilie' is fake and does not exist in any of our Oxford Dictionaries.
