    PPF Assam Calls To Boycott Chinese Products

    The forum referred to educator and innovator, Sonam Wangchuk's social message to boycott Chinese made products

    Patriotic People’s Front Assam (PPFA) had extended full support to the appeal of boycotting Chinese products amidst the Indo-China border tension in Ladakh.

    The forum referred to educator and innovator, Sonam Wangchuk’s social message to everyone in India to boycott all Chinese products.

    “If the entire Indian population along with Indians leaving abroad, boycott everything made in China, it would have a visibly negative impact on the Chinese economy and hopefully other countries would practice the same,” said Wangchuk in Hindi adding that it may not be the mobile phones, computers or other appliances, but Indians should avoid all Chinese software produces like Tiktok, Beauty plus etc.

    The Magsaysay awardee explained the reason behind China’s brewing tensions with India as well as Vietnam, Taiwan or Hong Kong people, that Beijing is scared of an uprising inside the country. He pointed out that the Chinese people were not happy with the government handling of novel coronavirus outbreak and they might raise voices for political reforms. Beijing believes that border disputes would help to generate sympathy to the regime and patriotism among their one billion-plus citizens. So they engineered the latest disputes with India.

    “We wholeheartedly support Wangchuk’s boycott Made in China campaign and would like to appeal everyone in the country to come forward extending gestures to the mission,” said a PPFA statement.

    PPFA further added that hat Indians must not keep sitting to appreciate the soldiers alone, but adopt the practices to ruin the enemy and make the largest democracy a self-reliant nation in true senses.
