VHP calls for boycott of Chinese products after Mansarovar yatra suspended
VHP joint general secretary says China had its eye on Tibet, which it had been “illegally” occupying.Updated: Jun 28, 2017 00:16 IST
The Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) today urged the people to boycott the Chinese products as a mark of protest against China’s refusal to allow pilgrims to undertake the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra.
The neighbouring country has reportedly refused entry to the first batch of some 50 pilgrims, who were supposed to travel to Kailash Mansarovar via Nathu La in Sikkim.
Reacting sharply to this, VHP joint general secretary Surendra Kumar Jain alleged that China had its eye on Tibet, which it had been “illegally” occupying.
He urged the Centre to take up the issue with the neighbouring country immediately and requested the people to boycott the Chinese products.
Meanwhile, China said the decision to suspend the pilgrimage was due to a border stand-off and alleged that the Indian troops had crossed the Sikkim section of the Indo-China border.
