Siliguri, 19th June: 20 Indian soldiers have died in a violent face-off with Chinese troops at the Galwan Valley in Ladakh.
Since then, there have been calls to boycott Chinese goods across the country. Several traders of Siliguri Bagdogra Airport’s market were spotted staging demonstrations on Friday. The protestors threw away all the Chinese goods and set them on fire. Besides, the agitated traders stated that from now on, no Chinese goods will be sold in the future.
Babu Sarkar, a trader, highly condemned the incident and described the attack on the Indian army as 'immoral'.
”We all know that China is dependent on us in various ways. However, from now on, no Chinese-made goods will be sold in any of our stores”, he added.
