Prime Minister Narendra Modi mocked Rahul Gandhi, referring to him as ‘Murkhon ke sardar’ (leader of fools), for his comment on the prevalence of “Made in China” mobile phones in India. Modi highlighted India’s progress in mobile phone manufacturing, stating that India now ranks as the second-largest manufacturer globally. He criticized the Congress party for not recognizing the achievements of their own countrymen. Both the Congress and the BJP are campaigning intensively in Madhya Pradesh ahead of the upcoming elections. Rahul Gandhi accused the BJP of purchasing MLAs and expressed confidence in the Congress winning a significant number of seats.
