Rajasthan: Rahul Gandhi explains how selfie phones can improve tourism
Addressing a rally in Dholpur, Rajasthan, on Tuesday Congress President Rahul Gandhi said he wanted people in China to use phones made in Rajasthan, and then visit the state which would improve tourism. Further, attacking Narendra Modi government, Gandhi said the Prime Minister made tall promises of creating jobs but didn't keep them as he only wanted to make the rich, richer. Here's more.
Gandhi said if one turns their phones over, they will see 'Made in China' because he claimed the Modi government didn't care. He said he wanted the youth of Rajasthan to make phones, which people in China would use. "Whenever a youngster in China will click a selfie, everyone will see made in Dholpur at the back of the phone," he said.
"Then the people in China will wonder where is Dholpur. We will bring him in Dholpur, make him our tourist, earn via tourism and send him back. This is what we want," Gandhi went on to say.

Gandhi then slammed PM Modi over a number of things. He said Lalit Modi gave Vasundhara Raje's (Rajasthan CM) son crores of rupees, and yet PM Modi says he is fighting corruption. "Law and order situation in Rajasthan is abysmal," Gandhi said. He added PM Modi said 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' but a party MLA was accused of rape in UP.
