July 23, 2020
After the Indian government’s decision to ban 59 Chinese apps for ‘engaging in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order’, the traders’ body Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) and Swadeshi Jagran Manch (SJM) have welcomed the move.
SJM said “We would like to thank government as they realised the sentiment of people of the country and banned Chinese apps. Swadeshi Jagran Manch has been demanding for a long time that a strong step should be taken against China. We would like to say that our country will give a befitting reply to China. We all shall continue our pledge to boycott Chinese goods.”
CAIT said, “We thank PM Modi on the decision to ban 59 Chinese apps. We have been campaigning against Chinese goods and this has come up as a big boost for that campaign. We also request that the central government should terminate all the contracts with Chinese companies.”
SJM and CAIT have been staging a protest for banning of Chinese products in India after 20 Indian soldiers got martyred in clashes at Galwan Valley. A protest has been going on throughout the country echoing the chorus for a ban on Chinese Goods in India. CAIT, on June 29 wrote a letter to Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal and demanded that all products which are sold in India through e-commerce or offline shops should mandatorily have the country of origin and content of value addition in the said item.
