Taking a step ahead, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) which is spearheading a national movement of “boycott chinese products” under its flagship campaign “Bhartiya Saamaan- Hamara Abhimaan” has today called upon the traders & people of the Country to celebrate this year’s Diwali as ” Hindustani Diwali” by taking a pledge for not using any chinese goods. The CAIT also said that it stands with Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and the Union and several State Governments for taking various steps to ensure that chinese goods or contracts to chinese companies should not pollute further the trade and commerce environment of the Country.
The CAIT has said that earthen Diyas and earthen Idols along with India made decorative articles, electrical bulbs and ther festival goods will be used by people of India. Likewise, the festival of Rakhi & Janmastami will also be celebrated with Indian fervour using only Indian goods.No trader in the Country will sell any chinese goods in India.The CAIT has called upon the traders to refrain from importing any goods from China and consume the chinese goods stock, if they have, by 15th July,2020. Thereafter, there should not be any sale of chinese products.The CAIT has also advised Indian importers not to import any goods from China and better source alternate resources. Each penny spent on Chinese goods will be used against the Indian forces and funding to Pakistan to conduct terrorist activities in India.
CAIT National President Shri B.C.Bhartia & Secretary General Shri Praveen Khandelwal in a joint statement issued here today said that over the years our Indian festivals have greater infiltration of chinese goods which has deviated the people of India from our centuries old great Indian culture and resulted in high distortion of sanctity of the festivals. At a time when China is aggressively posting its forces at the borders of Ladakh and trying to create its base in neighbouring Nepal with a view to surround India with its forces, the boycott chinese goods campaign will be a fitting reply to China.
Both Mr. Bhartia & Mr. Khandelwal appreciated and commended the Union Government and several State Governments for taking various steps to deny entry of Chinese goods in the Country or putting on hold various contracts given to Chinese Companies. ” The trading community comprising 7 crore traders fully endorse the steps taken by the Governments and stand in solidarity with Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and great Indian forces”-said Mr. Bhartia & Mr. Khandelwal.The CAIT assured the Indian forces that as they are prepared to fight China at the borders, the traders of the Country are all prepared to fight.
