Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) appeals to Bollywood celebs to refrain from endorsing Chinese brands


Traders’ body CAIT (Confederation of All India Traders) has appealed to celebrities to stop endorsing products of Chinese brands as a mark of respect and solidarity for Indian soldiers who lost their lives in the Galwan Valley attack in Ladakh. CAIT announced a new campaign called ‘Bharatiya Saaman-Hamara Abhiman’ to boycott Chinese products from India.

In an open letter, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) appealed to celebs like Aamir Khan, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Virat Kohli, Ranveer Singh, Sara Ali Khan, Salman Khan, Ayushmann Khurrana and others to stop endorsing Chinese products. According to CAIT, this step can effectively reduce the rate of imports from China and will help to encourage home-made Indian brands to grow by December 2021.

At least 20 Indian Army soldiers, including a Colonel, died in a violent clash with Chinese troops at the Galwan Valley in the Ladakh sector on Monday night.
