Swadeshi Jagran Manch film at Ramlilas to show India becoming a Chinese ‘colony’

Text Size:

RSS-affiliate SJM ties up with 50 Ramlila committees in Delhi to show the film, which criticises the Narendra Modi government’s economic policies.

The Swadeshi Jagran Manch (SJM) has decided to attack China through a provocative short film to be aired at Ramlilas. The film warns viewers that India is becoming a Chinese ‘colony’.

The RSS-affiliated economic body intends to tie up with 50 Ramlila committees across Delhi to screen the three-minute film through the festive period. It has already received the assent of 26 committees to screen the film.

The film is critical of the Narendra Modi government when it comes to dealing with what it says is a Chinese economic onslaught. It says given the way things are going, India is well on its way to becoming a colony yet again.

The opening lines of the film state: “Main Hindustan hoon, aaj main phir ek baar ghulami ki ore badh raha hoon. Aaj mere saamne Cheen ek badi chunauti ban khada hua ha, aur dukh iss baat ka hai ki use mere saamne khade hone ki taakat aap hi de rahe hain (I am India and I am on my way to becoming a colony again. China is a challenge before me, and it is painful that you are giving it the power to stand before me).”

The film praises soldiers of the Indian Army for standing up to Chinese aggression along the border, but is critical of the government for not being able to see through what it says are China’s plans to weaken the Indian economy.

The film has been made by Atul Gangwar, the head of SJM’s Delhi unit. He told ThePrint it was an effort to spread “awareness against China and Chinese products” through Ramlilas.

“So many people come to watch Ramlilas and there would be people who may not agree with us… This is an effort in throwing out Chinese economic influence from India,” said Gangwar.

Additionally, the SJM and other RSS affiliates are planning a rally on 29 October at Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan, demanding a change in the government’s economic policies.
