India boycotting Chinese goods: Doing more harm than good!

Anywhere you go in India nowadays, you will catch people vociferously chanting for boycotting Chinese goods in India. This is a common site in India in the aftermath of the vicious Uri attacks which took place in September. Actually India has alleged Pakistani army to feed terrorists in terms of training and ammunitions.

Now many people will end up thanking what China has to do with all this?

Actually China has been supporting Pakistan in terms of budget and weapons, moreover in the UN too China wielded its veto power to put stymies over India’s efforts in banning Masood Azhar, one of the most wanted terrorist for India and all over the world! This actually has outraged masses in India and suddenly a wave of patriotism has swayed. The so called “nation lovers” are appealing to the people all over India not to buy any Chinese product.
I eagerly want to know the views of responsible Indians!

Can you please point out why Chinese boycott is doing more harm? I personally believe that it is doing more good to India. People are not going to change their habits of celebration, but they can certainly change the way they celebrate and the things with which to they celebrate. So, people are still going to celebrate Diwali, but now with the boycott of Chinese goods, they will turn to Indian products. This shift in turn will work in favour of local manufacturers.
Today, there is a fashion to mock all the nationalists. I know that all those who are showing their patriotism are not genuine but at the same time, we cannot dismiss or mock all of them as fake.

I seriously agree with you, but if you have correct facts and figures of trade unions across India you will come to know that they have already bought Chinese products 2 and half months ago, so now boycotting will do no harm to them and their GDP but our sellers and GDP will be largely affected by it. If we want to boycott Chinese product then we should launch a propaganda at least 2-3 months ago so that traders and sellers will be well aware in advance so they will not buy Chinese product.
Thanks

Ours is big population and we need manufacturing to support job scenario in India. The current Government is rightly behind Make in India program. However manufacturing ills are not being resolved. Electricity shutdowns, lack of high speed internet penetration, poor infrastructure (inspite of tolls), poor Railway network and port capabilities are one set of reasons. The second set is myriad  of laws and capacity of authorities to keep entrepreneur on tenterhooks. If I am a mechanical design engineer, 90% of my time should not be wasted on laws, corruption, labor and taxes !! These two set of reasons have caused downfall of manufacturing and is showing hardly any signs of improvement. Then chinese products are bound to swamp our country. Just by banning chinese products may not be enough. We need to create our own manufacturing. From my end, I have to buy a mobile and I am seeing HTC like products, but a badminton racket and a basketball – there seems to be no solution besides chinese products
