New Delhi:The Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, took a dig at opposition parties, likening the previous government to outdated phones with frozen screens that people had discarded. He made these remarks while speaking at the 7th India Mobile Congress in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
Addressing the congress, the Prime Minister stated, ’10-12 years ago, you must have seen how the mobile phone screen used to freeze. The situation was similar to the previous governments; they were also frozen. There was no use in restarting them. Then we came into power. After 2014, people stopped using outdated technologies, and the futile exercise of changing batteries or restarting the system became a thing of the past.’
Furthermore, Prime Minister Modi highlighted India’s transformation from being a mobile phone importer to becoming the world’s second-largest mobile manufacturer. He emphasized the lack of vision in electronics manufacturing during previous governments, noting that India is now exporting around Rs 2 lakh crores worth of electronics manufactured in the country.
The year 2014 marked a significant turning point. Recently, Google announced the production of its Pixel phone in India, and Samsung’s Fold 5 mobile phone and Apple’s iPhone 15 are also being manufactured in the country. India’s global mobile broadband speed ranking has surged from 118th to 43rd place.
The government’s primary focus is to provide its citizens with access to capital, resources, and advanced technology. ‘Made in India’ phones are now being embraced globally, and the country’s progress extends to the 6G technology sector, shaping a promising future for its people,” stated the Prime Minister.”
