India’s national entertainer Rahul Gandhi seems to be running out of jokes. Wherever he goes, he has been repeating the same claim of establishing a Mobile factory that would export phones to China and will force the Chinese to use the phones ‘made in’ that town of India.
In the last 15 days itself, Rahul Gandhi has promised Made in Bhopal phones, Made in Dungarpur phones and most recently, Made in Chitrakoot phones. As the Madhya Pradesh elections draw close, the Congress president is touring more and more cities, and as predicted, promising mobile factories everywhere he goes. Like the adorable pug that used to follow previous Vodafone customers before the Zoozoos took over, non-stop laughter follows Rahul Gandhi’s claims be it in public or on social media.
Rahul’s Mobile factory obsession created many a memes and jokes on social media. But Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Chouhan proved that when it comes to puncturing claims and pouring cold water over sweet, dreamy promises, he is the king of all.
Noticing the hypothetical mobile factories threatening to mushroom all over his state, Shivraj Singh Chouhan wondered what has Amethi, where Rahul Gandhi has been an MP for decades now, produced in all these years.
‘मेड इन मध्यप्रदेश’ मोबाइल, ‘मेड इन चित्रकूट’ मोबाइल, BHEL के मोबाइल, पता नहीं राहुलजी और कहाँ-कहाँ मोबाइल बनाने की फ़ैक्टरी लगाने वाले है! राहुलजी आज भले कुछ भी बोल रहें हैं, पर सच्चाई ये है कि पिछले 70 सालों में ‘मेड इन अमेठी’ लिखा हुआ ‘पतली पिन का चार्जर’ भी नहीं बना पाए!

For those unfamiliar with the term, Patli pin ka charger means this :
Rahul Gandhi has a fertile imagination. He sees what others do not and he is certainly oblivious to things that are plainly visible to everyone. His obsession with mobile phones is turning so strong that after BHEL, he wants HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Limited) to start making mobile phones too, it seems if the princeling had his way, he will engage the garment merchants of Surat, software engineers of Bengaluru, sweet makers of Mathura and leather industry workers of Kanpur and just about everyone leave their vocation and start making mobile phones.
As Willy Wonka had his chocolate factory, Rahul Gandhi would have our country turn into a gigantic landmass filled with mountains of mobile phones, all with their respective pin codes engraved with ‘Made in XYZ’ mark.
