See this the thing about Loktantra that a communist dictator govt. cannot understand.
It won't matter much to cheen but in case the politicians in Bharat see that a huge chunk of youngsters are writing against chinese products on SM and also boycotting products, they will see it as a vote winner issue.
Imagine another party takes up this issue before elections and starts burning ceremony of chinese products like Gandhi ji did for brishit products, they will become hero and Modi will have to act tough against chinese trade imbalance. Right now he is watching how much public opinion is against cheen on its own.
I've been living in the U.S. for 20 years, I know all too well how these politicians promise one thing during elections then turn around and do exactly the opposite once elected. Big money from big corporations is what wins elections, the people are just pawns. How long have the Americans been shouting about the trade imbalance with the China? The only change I've seen in these 20 years is the Chinese went from exporting T-shirts to DVD players to iPhones and now cars over here. Both the values and the margins keep going up, and the Tommy Hilfigers and the Apples of the world get wealthier than ever.
Don't worry about boycotting this or that, work hard, get stronger, get wealthier, then and only then will all your wish come true.
