We are all aware of the war that is being waged between India and China. There are multiple reasons behind this war, from the YouTube versus TikTok war to the ongoing tensions between the two countries at the border.
Social media, news channels, and every other platform are filled with posts urging people to Boycott Chinese goods complete with the hashtag boycott China.
BSNL, MTNL and other private companies often ordered by the telecom ministry make some changes in their conditions in such a way that Chinese companies won’t be able to participate in the tender process. They have also been directed to cancel all the previous tenders for telecom equipment which cannot be used. As per reports, private mobile service providers will be directed to rule out the use of any Chinese equipment that exists at present. This will be officially declared through directors which will also ban any new purchase.
