Demand for boycott of Chinese goods grows louder in border district of Punjab
Amid the stand-off between China and India over a disputed territory in Bhutan, political activists, educationists, and service organizations have given a call for boycott of Chinese goods in the country.

After the demand was raised for boycott by various groups, the BJP workers too would persuade the traders not to sell Chinese-made goods.

In this context, the Ferozepur Unit of Bharti Lok Sewa Samiti, at border town district of Punjab, in its meeting decided to educate the people of the border towns to boycott Chinese goods by launching a campaign, said Dharampal Bansal, founder Chairman of the Samiti.

He said, "We will persuade the shopkeepers in the rural and urban areas of border district not to sell Made-in-China goods."

The Samiti will also approach the government to direct the customs officials not to clear consignments from China.

An old-timer of the city Darshan Lal said, "Since the boycott is likely to affect the economy of China, it will definitely come forward for dialogue across the table to settle the border issues with India, in case all the Indians made their mind not to purchase a single item of Chinese make."

On this occasion, Manoj Nagpal, Kamal Kalia, Balwant Singh, Raj, Rajesh, Praveen, Ram Sarup, Upkar Singh, Harjinder Singh and many more were also present.
