#BoycottChineseProducts and ‘Dalai Lama’ trended on Twitter on Thursday morning following the decision of China to oppose the bid to designate Jaish-E-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar as ‘global terrorist’ by the United Nations.
Indians on Twitter called for a boycott on Chinese products. However, demands for Bharat Ratna award for Tibetan spiritual leader 14th Dalai Lama, recognition for Tibet as an independent country were also seen on the micro-blogging site. Words China, UNSC, Masood Azhar also were national trends simultaneously.
China on Thursday blocked for the fourth time, the proposal to proscribe the Pulwama mastermind under the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council (UNSC).
Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday took a jibe at PM Modi and said Modi is afraid of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
“Weak Modi is scared of Xi. Not a word comes out of his mouth when China acts against India. NoMo’s China Diplomacy: 1. Swing with Xi in Gujarat 2. Hug Xi in Delhi 3. Bow to Xi in China,” he tweeted.
In a reply to Rahul, BJP said that Jawaharlal Nehru is the reason for China’s membership in UNSC.
“China wouldn’t be in UNSC had your great grandfather not ‘gifted’ it to them at India’s cost. India is undoing all mistakes of your family. Be assured that India will win the fight against terror. Leave it to PM Modi while you keep cosying up with the Chinese envoys secretly,” it said.
China is a permanent member of UNSC since 1945 while Nehru became the PM of India only in 1947.
While BJP workers criticised Nehru administration, Congress activists attacked the Modi government on Twitter.
