'Made in India' slogan; Rahul Gandhi accuses to Center over its ‘doublespeak’

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday accused the government of doublespeak over the 'Made in India' slogan, which he dubbed as a mere rhetoric.

Rahul Gandhi’s remarks came after Foreign Secretary Harsh Shringla expressed concern over the growing trade deficit with China as India's trade with it grew by 49 per cent in the first nine months of this year.

Taking to his official Twitter handle, Rahul Gandhi wrote - "The Usual Doublespeak. #MadeInIndia #Jumla." He also tagged a media report that said the trade with China grew by 49 per cent with Shringla red-flagging the deficit. The report said in the first 9 months of this year, India's trade with China touched USD 90 billion, an increase of 49 per cent.  The trade, on the other hand, remains unbalanced with a large trade balance in favour of China, Shringla had said.

"Our trade deficit concerns are twice-fold the first is the actual volume of the deficit. The trade deficit for the 9 months duration stood at USD 47 billion. This is the largest trade deficit we have with any country. Second, is the fact that the imbalance has constantly been widening," the foreign secretary had said.
