Yoga guru Baba Ramdev has called for a complete boycott of all Chinese goods and bank on ‘Made in India’ items. Explaining why he has called for a boycott of all Chinese goods, yoga guru Baba Ramdev said, “China makes money out of India and helps Pakistan”. Speaking at an event here on Wednesday, Ramdev said that he wants to put socio-economic pressure on the Chinese administration because they make money by selling its goods in the country to help Pakistan.
Asked about his view on calls to ban Pakistani artistes, Ramdev said, “Artistes are not terrorists. But do these people have no souls? They are only concerned about their films, earning crores and eating biryani. Why can’t they condemn the brutal killings of Indians in Uri or elsewhere?”
At various social media platforms, a campaign calling to boycott the Chinese goods has gained momentum in last few days. Yesterday, Beijing’s media said that products manufactured by Indian firms cannot compete with those of the China and that New Delhi can only ‘bark’ and do nothing about the growing trade deficit between two countries.
Experts, however, said that by boycotting Chinese products, there will be a huge setback for China and Chinese business organization. Right from toys for kids to items of everyday use, China provides everything for India. Festivals take place in India but preparations for them starts in China long back. Under such circumstances, if India decides to boycott Chinese items, it will shake China badly.
He said he was also open to setting up a Patanjali unit in Pakistan, adding that “unlike the Pakistani artistes”, he was not going to “bring back any profits”. He said he would use the earnings for the welfare of the people in Pakistan.
Praising PM Narendra Modi for the recent surgical strikes by Indian Army across the LoC, he said, “Eliminating the evil is not violence. I think (Prime Minister Narendra) Modiji will also decimate Dawood Ibrahim, Masood Azhar and Hafiz Saeed, so that people of this country forget any grudges they have with him with regard to black money and poverty alleviation… I tweeted to Modiji that he should talk about Buddha and yudhha (war) side by side. There can never be shanti (peace) without kranti (revolution).”
