On Sunday, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) released a video clip featuring Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's verbal mistake while delivering his speech on the final day of the Congress' 85th plenary session.
In his speech, Gandhi stated that "satyagraha" leads to "satta" (power), but he immediately corrected himself and clarified that it means never deviating from the path of "satya" (truth).

Former minister and Chhattisgarh BJP spokesperson Rajesh Munat, taking jibe at Rahul Gandhi over his slip of tongue, shared the clip and wrote: “Learn the meaning, pronunciation and expression of Satyagraha @RahulGandhi ji! Don’t teach us! @BJP4India has done satyagraha against the policies of Congress for many years along with the people of the country. What was on your mind, by mistake it came out through your words..Congress has only one mantra ‘never leave the path of power’.”

Rahul Gandhi delivered a speech at the 85th plenary session of the Congress, taking place in Nava Raipur, Chhattisgarh.
During his speech, Gandhi said: “Mahatma Gandhi talked about satyagrah. What is its meaning? Satyagrah means never leave the route to ‘satta’ (power)."
Gandhi, however, immediately corrected his mistake and said: “Sorry, it means never leave the path of truth. There is a new word for the RSS and BJP.”
“We (Congress) are satyagrahi and they are ‘sattagrahi’. They can do anything for power. They can collude with anyone and bow down before anyone for power. This is their truth..,” he went on to add.
