CAIT National President Mr. B. C. Bhartia and Secretary General Mr. Praveen Khandelwal the CAIT’s strong campaign about VIVO sponsorship in IPL forced VIVO to withdraw from the IPL and accordingly all other Chinese Companies should either withdraw their sponsorship or the BCCI should suspend their respective sponsorship. They also said it is learnt from media reports that BCCI will approach companies like Amazon and BYJU’s for sponsorship which will again trigger the controversy. The CAIT said that Companies like Amazon are notorious not only in India but in the world due to their extremely mal-practices against which investigation is going on in many countries of the world. Therefore such Companies should not be allowed to sponsor any event. Similarly, it would be extremely wrong to give sponsorship to the Chinese companies like BYJU’s which is not acceptable. However, the BCCI should bring Indian Companies as sponsors which will be a welcome step.
While releasing the agenda of the China Quit India campaign, Mr. Bhartia and Mr. Khandelwal urged the Central Government to carry out an all-round siege of China and its activities in India. They said that the Government should immediately ban Huawei from participating in the 5G network rollout in India.. On the demand of CAIT, the government has banned 59 Chinese apps and on the same lines, about 30 more Chinese apps are still running in the country and they should also be banned. Several Chinese Companies have made large investments in Indian startups in sizable numbers, all such startups should be asked to exclude Chinese investors and the government should announce a lucrative policy to encourage Indian people to invest in these startups. Mr. Bhartia and Mr. Khandelwal also said that at least for the next three years, the provision of government’s permission for any kind of business and industrial investment by China in India should be implemented immediately. They also said that the imports from China should be closely watched and the goods which are being dumped or the non-essential imports should be levied with either higher custom duty or Anti-Dumping duty should be imposed. The usage of chinese machinery in various construction and infrastructure projects having IOT devices should immediately be stopped.
Mr. Bhartia and Mr. Khandelwal said that such steps will not only reduce India’s dependence on China, but Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Vocal on Local” and Self-reliant India “will be implemented in the country in the true sense”.
