Pune, June 26, 2020: Kondhawe Dhawade, a village on the outskirts of Pune, has become the first to boycott Chinese products officially. The Gram Panchayat, on Wednesday, decided this because of the conflict that happened at Galwan valley in Ladakh between Indian and Chinese forces.

The Gram Sabha also made this necessary for all the contractors to ensure that any product which is made in China is prohibited. Local mobile shop owners have also been requested to avoid selling ‘Chinese brands’, and give preference to phones made in India.

The village Sarpanch Nitin Dhawade said, “Most of the villagers of our area have served in the Indian Army. Therefore, keeping with the sentiments of the villagers, we have taken this decision”.

Deputy Sarpanch Sunit Limbore said that first we are changing the stationery at the Gram Panchayat office. Anything made in China will be thrown away from the office. Similarly, tender works for road, building, gym, health centres, etc. will have to use ‘Made in India’ machinery.

The former deputy Sarpanch Snehal Amol Dhawade, who had moved the proposal to boycott Chinese products, informed that the order which has been passed in this regard is unanimous, and nobody will be interfering with this decision. It will be ensured that all the citizens boycott Chinese products.

“By boycotting the Chinese goods, we are doing nothing extraordinary, but paying our tribute to the Galwan Valley martyrs,” expressed Snehal.
