Recently a post by Sonam Wangchuk from Ladakh went viral on social media where he spoke about boycott of all products ‘Made in China’. He addressed the advantages of boycotting products manufactured in China as tensions between India and China continue along the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh.
There has been a campaign on social media that we should all ban Chinese products which has been an integral part of our system.
Ace producer Rajan Shahi supported this call and urged people to ban Chinese products. Recently he wrote on his social media, “To all Indian take forward say no and never to all products ‘MADE IN CHINA’ replace it by ‘MADE IN INDIA’. It will take time for me my family & DKP but ultimately will make it sure. Instead of all the time criticising and finding fault on state and central government on social media it is our nation our india. Go out and work towards making it.”
He also adds, “I might be also using lots of made in china products by default but will try and take steps henceforth and avoid as much is possible. If we start now eventually we will be able to remove all. Will also try to educate my production house. Let’s start with all the chinese apps.”
He concluded by saying, “Our armed forces who are saving us and standing for us at the borders in the difficult times we should be always thankful and grateful to them. But then buying Chinese products and giving them (Chinese Military) more money is definitely a big no for me. It is a sentimental call.”
Like Shahi there has been a lot of support in the entertainment industry around this. Let’s hope we can achieve our goal
