Banning Chinese products in India would be 'hasty', says Telangana CM KCR

At a time when there is a strong demand in India from various sections to ban Chinese products in India to avenge the killing of 20 Indian soldiers by Chinese Army in Ladakh recently, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao expressed a different opinion.

KCR participated in the all-party meeting held by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday, June 19, 2020, through video conference.

During the video conference, KCR said that any decision taken to ban Chinese products in India at this stage would be 'hasty'.

KCR remarked, "“There are opinions that say we should ban import goods from China. It will be a hasty decision. The goods that we are importing now should make in India. These goods should be available to the people at reasonable costs. We have to concentrate on this."

“We should prepare long-term and short term strategies to face the China aggressive attitude. There should not be any hasty act under any circumstances. At the same time, there should not be any compromise as far as our nation’s security and interests are concerned. Have strategic partnership with countries, which are friendly with us. Join the D group as suggested by the UK. Join the Oran alliance. Repel the Huawei Company’s strategy. We have to act with strategy,” the CM said.
