Peeved at China voting against India’s bid to enter Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) on June 24, social media was flooded with messages for complete boycott of Chinese products.
Young Kanpurites, who generally do not take much interest in politics, took this issue seriously and targeted China with their sharp comments on Facebook. They even circulated messages on Whatsapp groups and asked their friends to stop using Chinese products to register their protest. They also pulled the dragon into trolling zone on social networking sites to express their anger over China’s move in opposing India’s membership of NSG. Many people directly blamed China for thwarting India’s bid to NSG while others raised questions on the fact that if three out of five BRICS nations had voted against India then why India is still a part of BRICS group.
“Some countries who control the NSG are like shopkeepers who sell fruits at the front door but make more money by running a butcher shop at the backyard, and China is one of them“, wrote Subham Singh, a student, on the Facebook.
“China, Brazil and South Africa were against India’s entry in NSG. South Africa relented in the last hour. Does India have to be part of such a treacherous organization where three out of five countries have stabbed us in the back?” questioned a young entrepreneur on his social blog. Few of them commented that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent visits to different countries have completely failed as they had stabbed India by not supporting her in the NSG membership bid.
“It is surprising that our PM visited almost all countries like Brazil, Switzerland, Turkey, Austria, Ireland, New Zealand to get their support. Even after giving assurance, these countries did not support India. We should stop going to these places for vacationing,” wrote Faiz Anwar on Facebook. “US has not signed, Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), but it is an important member of NSG. People should start a movement in India for boycotting Chinese goods,” said Mayank Verma.
Besides, using social media to stand against the dragon, few youth, representing an NGO, came out on road and launched a signature campaign in the city in the hot sultry weather on Sunday. “Out of 48 members, 38 countries supported us and the move was vetoed by just 10 member nations. Are these 10 countries so strong to veto 38 others? I also strongly feel that we should stop buying Chinese goods“, said Mohammad Nasir, who was a part of the signature campaign.
