Taking a dig at the Prime Minister, the Congress on Thursday claimed that there was a rise in import of goods from China from Rs 50,000 crore to Rs 70,000 crore and asked Narendra Modi if he was promoting Made in China.

"When we (Congress) left the Congress, Rs 50,000 crore worth goods were being imported from China. The figure now stands at Rs 70,000 crore," Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said during a press conference on Thursday.

At the press conference, the Congress also accused Union minister Smriti Irani of misusing the MPLAD fund while citing the CAG report.
