In a significant move, the Indian govt, w/o naming China, has banned 59 [Chinese] mobile apps "which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order" [no. 1 on the list: #TikTok]
2/ Re Chinese retaliation, there will be particular Indian tech cos. who do biz in China that might be hurt, but this is one area where PRC not giving cos. mkt access limits their 1-to-1 leverage. & Chinese capital going into India into tech cos. hasn't been a favor but cuz of $$
3/ But GOI's move might cause some heartburn among other foreign cos. w digital presence in India. Might be concerned abt precedent & on future emph on domestic vs foreign cos. Much like #SelfReliance that seems directed vs China, this might take some reassuring broader audiences

On today's Mann Ki Baat, Indian PM Modi mentioned the China crisis. He didn't mention China by name, but he did talk about Ladakh & there are visuals of soldiers in Ladakh & also of the flag-draped coffins of fallen soldiers
2/ Re China crisis, Modi noted the world has seen India's strength & commitment to protect its borders & sovereignty; those who eyed India's territory in Ladakh were giving "befitting reply"; India knows how to maintain friendship, but also can look someone in the eye & retaliate
3/ Modi didn't mention #BoycottChina calls in India directly, but he did mention a woman from Assam writing abt her decision after "what happened in E Ladakh" to only buy local.

[this fits his prev call for #SelfReliance but still unsure how this fits w/ GVC/trade deal goals]

Lot of people especially Think Tank crowd are prisoners of their own ideas. The idea ‘Two countries that have McDonald’s will not go to war with each other’ has run its course. Simply because no one factored what happens if supplies to all McDonalds are controlled by one country
The Think Tank crowd does not understand that free market economy is a wonderful thing ( I am all for it) but what do you do when one thug communist regime uses free market principles to control all supply chains without opening their own country.
Suddenly countries are waking up to the fact that they have lost the ability to manufacture masks in bulk or PPE’s in bulk. Should they wait to be further strangulated or work on what they have lost? Mocking #selfreliance as oh so outdated ‘economic nationalism’ is passé

Just one virus has shaken up the world, the entire world is struggling to save lives, says @PMOIndia @narendramodi
India has to become #selfreliant. This pandemic has provided an opportunity for us to make the 21st century an Indian century , says @PMOIndia @narendramodi
Human centred globalisation is being discussed. Vasudaiva Kutumbakam is the spirit. In our culture, we treat the earth as the mother. So when we speak of #selfreliance we talk of well being for all, says @PMOIndia @narendramodi
