New Delhi, April 30 - The Congress Wednesday said World Bank data about India replacing Japan as the third largest economy was a solid reply to the BJP and its prime ministerial hopeful Narendra Modi's campaign of misinformation.

According to the report released in Washington, the size of Indian economy in terms of purchasing power parity grew to $5.75 trillion in 2011 surpassing Japan which had $4.37 trillion economy.
