Gajanan Rao | HENB | Nagpur | Aug 1, 2017:: With its demand for a “total boycott” of foreign manufactured goods, the Sangh Parivar’s economic wing, Swadeshi Jagran Manch (SJM) attempts to tap into the bitter border tussle currently on between India and China in Doklam area.
Swadeshi Jagran Manch has decided to lead a massive agitation against Chinese products beginning August 9, on the occasion of Kranti Diwas, which marks the Quit India movement.
Earlier, RSS mouthpiece, Organiser covered a news that “RSS would launch a nation-wide mass awareness drive against Chinese goods between August 1 to 15. Apart from this, a country-wide campaign by RSS-affiliated Swadeshi Jagaran Manch (SJM) is already on. The programme is receiving a good support from people and it would conclude on October 29 at Delhi’s Ramlila Ground with a massive rally”.
Ajay Patki, national ideologue of SJM, on Monday said the government should scrap all contracts with Chinese companies who are setting up manufacturing units in India, including one in Nagpur, to cater to the Metro railway projects.
In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the manch has sought prohibition on any new venture or allowing Chinese firms setting up manufacturing facilities here in light of the “continued transgression and intimidating activities at the border.”
The SJM is observing 2017 as “anti-China year”, and claims it has so far got around “one crore people” to pledge that they would boycott Chinese products.
Patki believes the presence of Chinese firms is causing millions of small businesses to shut operations, resulting in massive unemployment among the country’s youth population.
An IIM Indore faculty P Banerjee told HENB that the entry of Chinese usable products, machinery and raw material for small to medium scale industries in Indian market are all time high. And such foreign hold in Indian market and industries are just opposite to the principle of ‘Make in India’. Roughly, 40% of Indian customers use ‘Made in China’ products or products made out of Chinese materials or machinery. China has penetrated in such a way in Indian market and customers, it is difficult to check the Red dragon just through “one crore people’s pledge to boycott Chinese goods’.
Praising the move of Swadeshi Jagran Manch, Banerjee said, “if the RSS wing really make a boycott by 1 crore people with a serious effort, the Chinese companies and cross border illegal Chinese business will manage another 2 crore customers at ease in a year”. Govt. must crack the rackets involved in spreading illegal Chinese products in Indian markets, Banerjee added.
The MG Motors India Ltd, the newly-formed subsidiary of China’s largest automaker SAIC Motor Corp Ltd, is aiming to enter the Indian markets by taking over General Motors India’s manufacturing facility in Halol, Gujarat, from where it looks to launch its iconic MG (Morris Garages) brand vehicles by 2019.
In Nagpur, China Railway Rolling Corporation proposes to invest Rs 1,500 crore for the establishment of rolling stock manufacturing unit at Butibori industrial estate. The Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation will provide 150-200 acres of land for the proposed unit.
The CRRC has already bagged a contract for the supply of 69 coaches to the Nagpur Metro with the lowest bid of Rs 851 crore.
When asked, why many of BJP leaders use various Chinese gadgets from top to the bottom, Patki told HENB, “this move to boycott Chinese goods is not a political movement, but a national movement for economic betterment of the country. We will approach everybody. We except a behavioral change of the public including political leaders to strictly use Made in India, not Made in China or any foreign products”.
When asked BJP claims that they have more than 10 crore members, then why Swadeshi Jagran Manch is not approaching BJP National President Amit Shah to ensure 10 crore BJP members’ pledge to boycott Chines goods, Patki conveyed his preference to go ahead apolitically.
