Is there a method to madness in Rahul Gandhi’s plan of opening mobile manufacturing units everywhere?

Rahul Gandhi is obsessed with mobile phones. Any city he goes to, he insists that a mobile phone manufacturing facility is set up there. Considering he tweets like a teenaged girl, with heart emojis and all, instead of prime minister aspirant, one can understand his obsession with the mobile phones. After making mobile phones in Mumbai, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh and Bhopal, Rahul Gandhi has now decided mobile phones will be made in Chitrakoot, Madhya Pradesh if Congress comes to power.

Rahul Gandhi is so predictable that even before he made the big ‘Made in Chitrakoot’ announcement, people had already predicted he would mention the same. BJP Delhi spokesperson Tajinder Bagga had tweeted minutes before Rahul Gandhi’s speech.

One wonders what will the world do with so many mobile phones? No sooner had Rahul Gandhi uttered first words at the rally in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, #ChirkutinChitrakoot was trending on Twitter. Chirkut is a colloquial Hindi word for a foolish person.

In fact, if you hear the clip closely, you could hear someone in the audience prompt Rahul Gandhi to speak about the mobile phones.

Apparently, Rahul Gandhi is not just obsessed with mobile phones. Previously it was all about Congress trying to take credit that all products in India, from cars to computers, to have been brought by his family members who also doubled up as India’s prime ministers. Now, he is just redefining entrepreneurship.

So one wonders why would Rahul Gandhi indulge in something that’s now so repetitive, that it’s boring his own fans? Are his speech writers our of ideas? Or does he and his speechwriters think that people are idiots who will not see through this boring stupidity? Or is there a method to this madness?

If one Twitter user is to be believed, Rahul Gandhi is perhaps doing this so if he comes back to power in any state, he will claim that he has put all those factories, considering India has seen a sharp rise in mobile phone manufacturing after the Modi government came to power.

It is true that India has seen a tectonic shift in the mobile manufacturing industry. Recently, in July 2018, Samsung inaugurated the world’s largest mobile phone factory in Noida, India, which will roll out 120 million units per year. India has attracted investment from 37 mobile manufacturing companies recently and In 2017, India became the world’s second largest mobile phone producer after the proportion of global handsets produced in India increased from 3% in 2014 to 11% in 2017. Even Foxconn’s competitor and Apple’s largest contract manufacturer Wistron is also investing INR 3000 crores (US$ 450 million) for setting up a manufacturing unit in Karnataka which will produce 100 million units every year and will generate thousands of jobs.

Rahul Gandhi’s repetition is bordering on hilarity now. Not just people on Twitter, but even those ‘supporters’ attending his rally could predict what he is going to talk about. Why would he do that? Is he short of ideas? Does he think everyone is naive or as the Twitter user pointed out, he repeats the same gibberish so he can later claim the credit if he ever comes back to power? We will leave that for our readers to decide.
