Congress leader Digvijay Singh today asked party's youth brigade to launch a strong, fearless and "tit for tat" campaign against Narendra Modi on social media while describing him as "coward" and the "biggest liar".

Singh admitted that Congress is not being able to counter BJP of social media.

"I have not seen a person, who is more coward and a bigger liar than Modi. If you fear countering this liar, you should go and sit at home.... If anybody from the BJP opposes us, he should be replied with in the same language that they use against us.

"You have to counter his propaganda even at tea stalls. Do all the tea stalls belong to him. You go there. Fight him there and tell people how much untruth he speaks. Do not be scared in countering a liar like Modi."

Singh also admitted that Congress is not being able to counter BJP of social media.

"This is the age of social media. BJP and Sangh still dominate the social media space. We are not being able to counter them. We should be doing it," he said urging NSUI leaders to help increase party's reach on the new medium of communication like Twitter and Facebook.

Singh's pitch for calling a spade a spade and using the language used by RSS and BJP came even as party vice president Rahul Gandhi had for some time been advocating that Congress leaders should avoid indecent language and personal attack when criticising their opponents.

Even at the NSUI's convention today, Gandhi said, "Our focus is never on anger but love and brotherhood. We are a party of Mahatma Gandhi. Our focus is more on work and so is yours. This is our DNA. You should not leave it. How much the Opposition provokes you, I urge you not to fall in the trap. You work with love."

Singh, who has been a trenchant critic of Modi on social media and in public discourses, has been advocating
