A Thread Which Every Indian Must Read & Share :

And now you realise why we claimed/occupied 'our' territory in Lipulekh Nepal a few days back.

It was a national and strategic necessity. Or we would have lost it--- it was in the pipeline of being 'gifted' to China by Nepal.
Same is the case with Doklam, Bhutan, 33 Corps. The Chinese are always playing mischief there. Had it not been for IA, they would have physically occupied it a long time ago or it would have been 'gifted' to China.

China's eye on Himalayan 'tri-junctions'.
There are a total of 4 important tri-junctions on the 4056 km long Indo-China border.

A 'tri-junction' is a small area where the borders of three countries meet. This territory is militarily vulnerable.

These 'tri-junctions' are through the Himalayan entrance.

In an earlier thread 👇(written 6 months before #Pulwama) I tried to get into this Most Favoured Nation thingy and why India should immediately strip #Pakistan of that status - economically and geopolitically

Let's try #China now.Would it make sense to revoke China's MFN status?
For starters, India seems to enjoy being the punching bag of the world- affectionately called "becoming Vishwaguru" by many in the administration.

God alone knows why India never revoked MFN for Pakistan till Pulwama while Pakistan hasn't made India MFN SINCE DAY 1 OF WTO (1996)
India provides preferential tax treatment based on a 2003 agreement, to 217 Chinese goods (at a good 13% lesser than MFN rates given to other nations). China has similarly preferential rates for 188 items. Even before #GalwanValleyFaceOff the #ChineseVirus exposed the flaw here:

Yes, Indians do need to #BoycottMadeInChina, but a big chunk of Indians don't live & breathe on social media & don't follow SM "trends."

Realistically, our trade policy with China needs an urgent revisit. The Made in China problem needs a bigger solution than the boycott.
If India has such huge imports from China, I think the more germane question is - why? We have cheap labour - much of which is looking for jobs now btw. We have resources aplenty.

We must follow a strategy to slowly SHIFT from imports to manufacturing locally. Won't be in a day.
Another question worth considering will be evaluating China's response to this aforementioned shift. Will probably be nasty. So we should be prepared for finding new markets for our own exports to China as well.

THREAD about some of the #economic/#technology chatter we’re hearing from the media/public/govt while the #China-#India boundary situation has been playing out 1/
For one, there are once again calls in India to boycott Chinese products (seen these before, including during Doklam) with hashtags like #boycottmadeinchina, #boycottchina and #boycottchinesegoods. Also saw these recently when COVID-related anti-China sentiment was peaking 2/
The boycott calls have been spurred to some extent by Sonam Wangchuk (inspiration for Aamir Khan’s character in 3 Idiots), who has called for a #GrabYourWallet response by Indians. Some “influencers” have since claimed they have deleted Chinese apps 3/…

Why you should #BoycottMadeInChina

• China through its Economic + Expansion policy is affecting other countries strategically.
Let's see how it affects India and others thru its high Export to Import Ratio in Trade. Termite would be the correct term for them.

2/n...Why you should #BoycottMadeInChina

• Astoundingly, India’s share in China’s imports stood at a menial percentage in comparison to exports. Means insignificant presence of Indian products in Chinese markets. Reason?
#AatmNirbharChina? Yes.
3/n...Why you should #BoycottMadeInChina

• In this way, they secure jobs for locals. Jobs might be hard on terms but better than unemployment.

• Software and Hardware export from China to India shares big % as compare to other sectors.

You saw Sonam Wangchuk urging Indians to #BoycottChineseProducts, from softwares to hardwares?
I am with him.

Here's how all Indian MOTHERS can make this happen on a large scale.

Bcoz maa ka mara thappad acche acchon ko sahi kar deta hai (China, are you listening?)
All these toys (pic in previous tweet) belong to my little boy. Some I bought, some came to him as gifts from loving uncles and aunties.
All of these are #MadeInChina.

It is astounding how the children's toy market in India is flooded with Chinese products.
All types of toys... Cars, soft toys, books, battery-operated toys, and even rubber squeeze toys that are made in China are out there in the toy shop round the corner in your area.

Some are cheap, some are expensive.
And we buy it blindly for our kids or someone else's.

Ladakh Tehsil Revenue map of 1909, Chinese official maps of 1893 show Aksai Chin as part of Ladakh. Galwan River valley, where China has transgressed LAC in maps clearly part of Ladakh. @LtGenGurmit explains how China took control of AksaiChin in 1950s & now attempts to alter LAC
China is trying to change status quo along LAC (let alone borders). China is gradually creeping forward, salami slicing territory & trying to occupy it. India (Govt, army & people) must resist it, expose China & push back for restoration. No compromise with territorial integrity.
China is no friend of India. Wuhan & Mahabalipuram notwithstanding, Chinese army deploying more than 2 brigades shows bullying tactics being adopted. If a skirmish does not suit India, it does not suit China either. India must pay back with interest elsewhere. A game two can play
