New Delhi, June 4, 2020-
In what appeared to be a spontaneous show of emotion, few personnel of an Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) unit based in Jammu and Kashmir took pledge to boycott all China made products amid the recent standoff between the forces of both the countries in Ladakh.
The pledge was taken on Tuesday in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sopore district.
In a viral video, the CRPF personnel in uniform could be heard taking a pledge to boycott ‘Made in China’ products like eatables, clothings and electronic gadgets.
A CRPF spokesperson at its Delhi headquarters, M. Dhinakaran, called the act an “emotional activity” done at the local level, saying the matter was under consideration.
“It was not an official announcement. It was done at a local level on emotional grounds. We are looking into it,” Dhinakaran told.
The 3.5 lakh strong paramilitary force is mandated to maintain law and order in Maoist-hit states, carry out anti-terror operations in Jammu and Kashmir and perform other internal security duties across the country. (Agency)
