As tension between India and China border continues, activists and residents of Andheri have removed a silent protest at the Air Cargo Complex at Sahar. Their aim: boycott ‘Made in China’ goods.

Members of the NGO Watchdog Foundation and several citizens said they would urge Customs and importers not to clear goods from China.

The protesters also plan to appeal to the government to ban all ‘Made in China’ goods and instead, encourage manufacturing in India. The NGO said will hold another protest on Saturday, where it plans to destroy imported Chinese products.

The chairman of Chamber of Associations of Maharashtra Industry and Trade (CAMIT), Mohan Gurnani, told HT, “It is not possible to avoid using all China-made items. But as an act of nationalism and in public interest, we need to encourage manufacturing goods in our own country.”

Even people said that avoiding all Chinese goods will be difficult for them but they can minimise the consumption.
