The party retorted, saying what the Chief Minister said was perhaps the biggest lie.

He also said a political system "cannot be secular", adding that it can be "sect-neutral".

Taking a dig at Adityanath, Sibal said in Twitter: "says secularism is a lie and compares Modi's to Ram Rajya. This truth is perhaps the biggest lie."
