A huge 91 percent people in India want boycott of ‘Made in China’ goods, irked at Beijing’s support to Pakistan and its move to block New Delhi’s efforts to join Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), according to a survey conducted by a leading newspaper.
As per the survey conducted by Hindustan, sister organization of leading English daily Hindustan Times, 91.22 percent people in India wants a blanket ban on Chinese products to teach Dragon a lesson.
They say China will indeed come under pressure if ‘Made in China’ goods were boycotted in the country.
4.36 percent of voters say the idea will hardly leave any impact on Chinese economy whereas 2.2 percent people say the move will impact Indian economy instead.
A total of 7,897 people participated in the survey, according to the newspaper.
Indians are said to be very angry with China right now for its move to block New Delhi’s efforts to join NSG and ban Masood Azhar, Jaish-e-Mohammed chief.
Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad has been blamed for deadly terrorist attack at an Army camp at Uri, Kashmir last month, which left 19 soldiers dead.
Reports say New Delhi has constantly sought Beijing’s support in isolating Pakistan over the issue of terrorism but the latter has yet to come on board.
“We can only convey our concerns. It’s up to them to review their decision. We hope they will see the logic,” MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup was quoted as saying in Hindustan Times today.
