Never Endorsed Modi as 'Incorruptible': WikiLeaks

Whistle-blower Julian Assange-founded website WikiLeaks today said it never endorsed BJP's prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi as "incorruptible".     

In a series of tweets, WikiLeaks claimed it never said Modi was incorruptible. "…rather he is popular because he is 'viewed' as 'incorruptible'," WikiLeaks tweeted.     

The whistle-blower website's clarification came in the backdrop of some BJP supporters circulating posters quoting Wikileaks founder Julian Assange saying that "America is scared of Modi because he is incorruptible."     

BJP, however, downplayed the WikiLeaks tweets. "We don't need a certificate from Wikileaks or Assange on Modiji," BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.
