With a Sino-Indian standoff on the border, RSS's economic wing Swadeshi Jagran Manch (SJM) has urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to allow Chinese companies to set up new units in India. "The government should not allow the establishment of any new venture or any new manufacturing facility by Chinese firms as China is regularly indulging in transgression, incursion and other provoking activities on our borders," SJM National co-convener Ashwani Mahajan said. The SJM has written a letter to Modi saying that till now, the government has been giving China "apt" replies, "but it will be futile if the Centre does not halt their economic onslaught". India can "ill-afford" this "back-door entry of China in our country's manufacturing sector", Mahajan said in the letter. The SJM, which promotes the use of indigenous products, said China was adopting a "policy of opaqueness" and not giving "space" to products from India. The SJM is observing 2017 as "anti-China year", as part of which it has so far got over 75 lakh people to pledge that they would reject "substandard" Chinese products.
