The tweet drew mixed reactions from Twitter users. While some agreed with the reasoning of Jain, some others pointed out that the parent company continues to be Chinese.
"Sir Xaomi name itself is Chinese (sic)," said Twitter user Deepak (@deepaknrn) whose bio in the social media account simply reads "A Proud Indian."
"Where does the Final profit go???," asked Twitter user Siddharth Sharma (@Siddhar97465501).
Some others argued that the so-called "Made in India" Xiaomi products are actually "assembled in India".
However, some users supported XIaomi. "I love Xiaomi. Waiting for new smartphone launch," replied one user on Jain's tweet.
The Xiaomi India MD also shared a link to his interview to news channel CNBC-TV18 where he said that the company invests back in India.
He argued that even American smartphone companies selling their products source components from China and the same is true about Indian smartphone brands.
While admitting that there is currently an anti-China sentiment on social media, he said that it has not impacted Xiaomi's business in the country.
Earlier, Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth who is also very active on social media said that Realme is an Indian startup.
In his latest episode of 'Ask Madhav' series on YouTube, he said: "I can proudly say Realme is an Indian startup, which is now a global MNC (multinational corporation)".
Amid border tensions with China and a growing chorus for boycotting Chinese goods, top Indian executives of some of the most popular phone brands have found themselves in hot water every time they tweet to promote their upcoming or existing products.
