Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday took a jibe at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for his "coconut juice" and "potato factory" remarks.

"There is a Congress leader, and I want to pray for his long life...he recently went to Manipur to address an election rally. There he told farmers that he would extract juice from coconuts and send it to London. In fact, a coconut possesses water (and not juice) and it is grown in Kerala," PM Modi said while addressing a rally in Uttar Pradesh.


"It is like setting up a potato factory," Modi said indirectly referring to Rahul's earlier statements that the Congress leader wants to set up potato factories in UP.

"Such a talented and far-sighted leader he is," PM said and asked the Congress vice president what he exactly wants to do for the state.

Rahul, while addressing an election rally in Manipur on Tuesday, had reportedly remarked that "I would also want when someone drinks coconut juice in London and sees Made in Manipur written on it."

The Congress leader had earlier said in UP to a gathering of farmers that "You all are demanding a potato factory in your area, but you should understand I am an opposition leader, I can put pressure on the government, but cannot take the decision. I cannot open a potato factory for farmers".
