New York: Whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks on Monday said it never endorsed Gujarat Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s prime ministerial candidate Narendera Modi as 'incorruptable'.

"No WikiLeaks document say #Modi is 'incorruptable', rather he is popular because 'viewed' as 'incorruptable' ," WikiLeaks tweeted on Monday.

The website said BJP supporters were circulating posters which quoted Wikileaks founder Julian Assange as saying: "America is scared of Modi because they know that he is incorruptible."

"Narenda Modi's #BJP has been pushing this fake #Modi endorsement- but #Assange has never said anything about #Modi," WikiLeaks tweeted.
