This could be another scam in the making with BJP leaders involved in the launch of the cheap smart Phone.

How can some company claim to sell phone at Rs 251/- where as Industry expert say that the cost cannot be less than Rs 3000/-. Today paper say that the company expect to make a profit of Rs 31/- from each phone sold.
