'Boycott China': Indians take to the streets to denounce Chinese products

The violent clash between India and China across the Line of Actual Control in Galwan valley has stirred stress for citizens on either sides. The violence killed 20 Indian soldiers in action, while China is yet to reveal its fatalities.

In the aftermath, many Indian cities erupted in protests against Chinese President Xi Jinping, while calling for a full fledged boycott of Chinese products, and instead buying locally manufactured and designed devices.
