New Delhi: Pitting 'Make India' against 'Make in India', Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday questioned the foreign tours of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and wondered whether it behoved the PM to visit individual companies to seek investment.

As Modi wrapped up his two-nation tour of Ireland and the US, Kejriwal asked what the country had achieved from the PM's foreign trips and took a dig at his engagements at Facebook headquarters and Google campus among others.

"PM Modi's US trip ends. Time to ponder what has country achieved from his foreign trips so far? Does it suit the stature of an Indian PM to visit individual cos seeking investments?" Kejriwal asked in a series of tweets.

Kejriwal has been targeting Modi's flagship 'Make in India' project throughout the week with his 'Make India' pitch, stressing that the country should first focus on infrastructure development. That would itself attract investment, he said.

"For instance, Chinese first built China and then all corporate giants vied to invest in China. So, lets first Make India. If we make India strong, investments will come at our terms, else investors will dictate terms," he said.
