Boycott China: People throw China-made TV from balcony in Surat as protest


Ever since the ruthless faceoff by Indian soldiers with the Chinese PLA Army on the LAC happened, Indian citizens have been fuming over the death of 20 Indian Jawans who were outnumbered in the attack.

Among the many developments that happened as a result of resistance towards China, people started to call for a boycott on Chinese goods. Major Indian trader’s association has rung the bell as well.

In one such development, video footage shows people protesting on the Galwan Valley incident by pushing out a flatscreen LED television out from the balcony of an apartment, as a boycott to Chinese products. After the TV hits the ground people were seen stamping and kicking it.

Watch the footage captured in Gujrat’s Surat below:

A group of people throws the TV-set, apparently from the second floor of an apartment, and another group of people waiting for the TV to fall can be seen springing on the television set as soon as it hits the ground, striking it with sticks, kicking and jumping on it.

People can be heard chanting Bharat Mata ki Jay. The video has so far been viewed over two million times. And has been retweeted nearly 4k times. Nonetheless, people had given a mixed reaction to the vandalism. Some were quick to point out that breaking a TV need not be a point to protest. See the reaction below:
