Chinese lighting and decorative items are used in almost every household during Diwali,Customers switch to it as they are attractive and cheap in the market.If we consciously decide to buy local products, it will boost our own economy instead of contributing to the Chinese economy. Soon the action will be taken on the cracker industy at Sivakasi, said Sharan Pumpwell.
They boycotted by burning these products strongly condemning it.Chinese items are not expensive and that is why there is a huge demand for these. The government should ban the import of these items, and incentives should be given to domestic manufacturers to keep the prices low.
