Jaunpur patilaa, Aligarh locks, Bhopal phones: While Rahul Gandhi talks, Make In India is delivering results

Rahul Gandhi has a great vision for India. If voted to power, he will make India the golden destination for manufacturing and trade. If the Congress comes to power, there will be no lack of employment. If the Congress comes to power, industrial progress, entrepreneurship and exports will be taken to new heights. If the Congress comes to power, the whole world will look towards India as a global manufacturing hub. Speaking at a rally in Rajasthan’s Dungarpur today, the Congress president made this promise to the locals:

The ‘Made in Dungarpur’ mobile phones came just a couple of days after a similar promise was made in Bhopal. Rahul Gandhi has promised the people in Bhopal that all the mobile phones with ‘Made in China’ tag will soon be converted to ‘Made in Bhopal’. While this time he was kind enough not to ask BHEL to make mobile phones, Rahul Gandhi’s obsession with making cities of India the global manufacturing hub of mobile phones was listed out by one Twitter user.

One also wonders if Rahul Gandhi is just laying the groundwork so he can later claim credit for increased manufacturing of cell phones if he comes to power. After all, the Prince will have to say something to substantiate his ‘achievements’.

Not just mobile phones, as readers will very well remember, Rahul Gandhi wanted Mrs Obama to use pans made in Jaunpur. He wanted Aligarh to be the global leader in making locks too, all of these will be possible when the Congress comes to power. But, wait, wasn’t Congress in power all these years?

Surprisingly for a political leader who keeps hailing entrepreneurship and talks of boosting manufacturing abilities of the country, Rahul Gandhi was very much sceptical about the Make In India campaign launched by PM Modi in September 2014. He even mocked it in the parliament calling it a failure.

Congress has remained in power in India for the major part of the country’s history after independence. Yet, Rahul Gandhi offers no explanation for why the cities he mentioned never became a manufacturing hub in all these years of Congress rule.

On the contrary, the Make In India campaign that Rahul dismisses as a failure might be on track to taking all these political dreamings to fruition. Launched in 2014 by PM Modi, the campaign has been a major boost to the Indian manufacturing sector. When it comes to made in India mobile phones, global manufacturers like Foxconn, ZTE, Oppo and Samsung have started their units in India. Recently, Samsung had launched in Noida what is supposed to be the world’s largest mobile phone manufacturing facility with a capacity of shelling out 120 million mobile phones a year. Recently, it was revealed that ‘Made in India’ mobile phones have helped India save Rs 3 lakh crores and has created 4 lakh 50 thousand jobs in the country.

Rahul Gandhi conveniently ignores the fact that when his party was ruling India during the 60s and the 90s, India had registered a dismal 3% GDP growth rate, mocked all over the world as the ‘Hindu rate of growth’, when other Asian countries like Taiwan, Singapore and South Korea dramatically increased their manufacturing capabilities and sprinted with a 7% growth.

While Congress is repeating its old tirade of where are jobs, where is growth in every election rally, Make in India has brought global giants like Boeing, Saab, Alston, Lockheed Martin, Volvo and many more to India. So while Rahul Gandhi keeps making promises, Make in India is already delivering, playing a major part in taking India’s GDP growth rate to be ranked among the world’s best.
