Jamshedpur: Expressing concern over the whopping trade deficit as well as the internal and external security threat by China, Swadeshi Jagran Manch (SJM) has launched a "boycott Chinese product" campaign in the steel city here.
Manoj Singh, a member of the National Council of SJM, said on Tuesday that as first phase of the campaign that began on September 10 the Manch had distributed leaflets to mobilise support against the Chinese products in India.
Accusing the UPA government for failing miserably to check invasion of Chinese products in Indian markets, Singh said China was eyeing to grab Indian market completely and succeeded to a great extent by making inroads in all sphere of products from big to small.
Justifying the campaign, Singh claimed that our trade deficit with China was 1.08 billion dollar in 2001, which further enhanced to 16.3 billion dollars in 2007-08.
Apart from the bilateral trade front, Singh said China has been a major threat to our security internally and externally.
Singh said SJM would launch "Nukkad Natak" (street corner play) to aware masses to boycott Chinese products, organize seminars and meetings in the second phase.
In the last phase of the campaign, he said SJM would burn heaps of Chinese products.
