Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Tuesday hit out Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi over his allegation on Sonia Gandhi's foreign trips, saying he has been trained well by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh in the 'Nazi tradition' of false propaganda and Bharatiya Janata Party's 'cheap intentions' have been proved by trying to politicise a health issue.

Comparing the Gujarat chief minister with Joseph Goebbels, the Propaganda Minister of Nazi government in Germany, the Congress leader picked on his favourite target RSS alleging it trains its cadres in 'disinformation campaign'.

In his posts on the microblogging site Twitter, Singh said, "Sangh trains it's cadre in disinformation campaign. Obviously Modi has been trained well! Sangh has modelled itself in the Nazi tradition.

"Sangh training to it's cadre. Jhoot bolo zor se bolo aur baar baar bolo (Tell a lie, tell it loudly and tell it hundred times). Doesn't it remind you of Hitler's Goebbels?"

Singh's attack againt Modi and RSS came a day after Modi alleged that Rs 1,880 crore was spent from state exchequer for Congress President Sonia Gandhi's foreign trips citing a media report.

In the night, he offered to publicly accept his mistake if the claim turned out to be false. "I had said this thing based on the report of a newspaper. If my information is wrong, today I say that I will publicly accept this mistake", Modi said addressing another rally in Junagadh.

Digvijay Singh said the incident 'establishes the motive of BJP and Narendra Modi, their malafide cheap intentions. They want to politicise even an issue like health'.

The Congress President had gone thrice to an undisclosed destination abroad in last more than a year for a surgery.

Modi said that a response given by the government to an Right to Information application of a youth of Hisar in Haryana, published in a newspaper on July 12 this year, was the basis for his claim.

However, the youth Ramesh Sharma questioned the figures by Modi and said he had not received any reply to his RTI query. Asserting that there is nothing to hide on the issue on Gandhi's foreign trips, the Congress general secretary that the BJP was now saying that they got the information from a newspaper.

"Now Narendra Modi should tell in which newspaper he read and which news agency gave him this information. There is nothing to hide regarding Sonia ji's health and foreign trips," he said.

He said that what can be expected from Modi 'who did not even apologise for the death of thousands', an apparent reference to the 2002 Gujarat riots.

"I do not expect an apology," Singh said. Meanwhile, When asked about the issue, National Democratic Alliance ally Janata Dal-United appeared to take a dig at Modi over his flip-flop.

"It is a country of 120 crore people. People have a freedom to speak. This freedom also leads to some good things and some times to bad. Due to this freedom, some absurd information is also spread...if there is a cure, I want people to be cured," party chief Sharad Yadav said.

Asked whether he is saying that Modi suffers 'from some problem', the JD-U President said, "We have an alliance. Do you want clashes between us? Is it necessary to comment on everybody?"
