The call to boycott Chinese goods has once again flared up among the general public in India. Following the recent tussle between Indian and Chinese Army personnel at Galwan Valley on Monday night, the public is demanding the government to give an appropriate reply to the enemy. India lost 20 soldiers in the tussle.
Meanwhile, the Indian security agencies have also identified at least 50 Chinese apps that pose a threat to security.
The report that the agencies have submitted mentions that these Chinese mobile apps collect important data and pass them to their authorities in China. These apps include TikTok, Helo, UC Browser, and many others.
In another development, the government’s telecom department has issued notice to BSNL not to use any Chinese equipment in the 4G processing. BSNL is government-owned and one of the largest telecom operators in India. It is upgrading its 4G services in many of the remote and border areas.
Sources say that the government has also started scrutinizing the tenders that were recently awarded to Chinese companies.
