Swadeshi Jagran Manch (SJM), affiliated with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Manch (RSS) has requested Prime Minister Modi to take steps to limit the operation of Chinese companies in India in response to China’s continuous blocking of India’s efforts to designate Masood Azhar as a global terrorist.
In the aftermath of the Pulwama terrorist attack in Kashmir which left 44 CRPF personnel dead, India moved to list Masood Azhar, the JeM chief, as a global terrorist.
However this attempt, like the previous ones, were thwarted by China which holds a permanent seat the UN Security Council and is an ‘all-weather friend’ of Pakistan. The US, the UK and France which are the other permanent members of the Council have supported India’s position.
JeM, a terrorist outfit based in Pakistan has claimed responsibility for the Pulwama terror attack.
In a letter addressed to PM Modi, SJM co-convener Ashwani Mahajan said that “dastardly terrorist attack in Pulwama has shaken the conscience of the nation and at this time steps should be taken to prevent the economic gain of any nation that directly or tacitly supports such terrorists.”
India runs a massive trade deficit of close to $60 billion with China, which is also its biggest trade partner. Also, exports from India like pharmaceuticals and agro-products have been artificially restricted by the Chinese authorities through opaque regulatory requirements.
