New Delhi: Union minister Ramdas Athawale has said all restaurants and hotels that sell Chinese food in India should be closed down and products made in China should be boycotted.

His comments come after 20 Indian soldiers lost their lives in a violent clash with the Chinese army in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley.

“China is a country that betrays. India should boycott all products that are made in China. Chinese food and all restaurants and hotels that sell Chinese food in India should be closed down,” Athawale said in a tweet.

Twenty Indian Army personnel including a colonel were killed in a fierce clash with Chinese troops in the Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh on Monday night, the biggest military confrontation in over five decades that has significantly escalated the already volatile border standoff in the region.

  1. The statement about Chinese food is pretty brainless. The food is made by Indians and the places are owned by Indians. Another brainless BJP member. How about Chinese products instead like cell phones. Oh wait almost all are made in China. Boycotting does not work. The Modi government has proven again that he does not know how to run a country. How many more major mistakes by this Prime Minister are the voters going to allow?
