Taking “Dire” action upon China would do any better?
The recent skirmishes between Indian Army and Public liberation Army has escalated the tension between these nation not only internationally but also among citizens. Although it seems to me prima facie that China tried to subvert India territorial integrity it would not be feasible for us to partake in sudden “Boycott China” activities.
China is facing intense international pressure over its decision over passing of National Security Law over Hong Kong autonomous region and its activities in South China Sea. You can see social media floded with posts os ‘boycott china’, but at the same time steering clear of Chinese goods would also have stringent effect on Indian economy. China has found its feet deep inside Indian economic activities. You can see in majority of Indian houses; Chinese goods are being used so you can imagine the depth of Chinese involvement in our day to day life.
You can see videos of people breaking there smartphone or Television[since they found out they are using Chinese product] does greater loss to them than to the Chinese Firm which manufactured these products. Not only boycotting these goods impact our Economy it will leave lakhs of Indians unemployed. We should avoid making navie moves and scrupulously consider all the ground facts. The post Covid-19 situation seems to be daunting but we have to rely upon an old proverb ‘where there is a will there is way’ and to circumvent the worst situation.
Banning of 59 Chinese apps by Indian government seems to be plausible. Many multi-national Firms have their eyes set out on India and any faulty decision can make us bear heavy losses Hence it is time not to be penny wise and pound foolish. We have to climb a step at a time, and therefore rather than taking foolish decision over boycotting of Chinese goods we need to plan, and meticulously consider all the pros and cons to gradually lessen chinese activity in India.
