Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday mocked Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for suggesting to use wind turbine to extract oxygen and generate water from atmosphere.

Gandhi shared a small video of the dialogue between PM Modi and Henrik Anderson, president of Danish wind-energy company. He tweeted, “The real danger to India isn’t that our PM doesn’t understand. It’s the fact that nobody around him has the guts to tell him.”

In the video, Modi is seen suggesting, to produce a three-in-one wind turbine systems.

He said: “… in places where there is a higher level of moisture, installing wind turbines can help extract water from the atmosphere and produce clean drinking water. Thus, wind turbines can produce power on one side and the other, suck moisture from the air and extract water.”

He also called for the research into his suggestion of extracting oxygen from the air though he believes that’s a difficult task. He went on to say, “But if a wind turbine extracts oxygen from the atmosphere… it will be possible to capture the oxygen market.”

Modi’s suggestion spurred hilarious reactions from Indian Twitter users. Netizens recalled the previous bizarre comments of PM Modi when he advised Indian Air Force to attack Pakistan under cloud cover so they would not be detected by radars.

One of the tweeps @shuvankr posted: “Modi told Danish wind turbine maker… ‘Now your wind turbines make only wind energy. They should also take “water vapour” out to make drinking water. And, also take #Oxygen out from air and capture #OxygenMarket…”

Meanwhile, others argued that extracting oxygen and water from the air is an outlandish idea.

One Twitter user wrote: “It’s baseless! Modi is talking about extracting oxygen from the air, not from water! And extracting water, oxygen, and energy at the same time! Electrolysis is the use of electricity to split water into oxygen and hydrogen.”
