"There has been a debate in social media on boycotting Chinese product. These products are already with the wholesalers but there has been a 20 per cent decline in demand from the retail traders as they are worried whether people will actually buy it or not," he said.

There has been a social media call for boycott of Chinese goods in following that country's opposition to a UN ban on JeM chief Masood Azhar as well obstructing India's membership in the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG).
