War is imminent, trespassing is in the process and if our soldiers fight one on the border then you as a citizen can fight from the wallet.

A few days ago, Mr.Wangchuk uploaded a video explaining the nitty grits of the border tension and between India and China. They heading towards a faceoff face-off along the Line of Actual Control or LAC. He further explains that more than the feeling of enmity, China is trying to cover and solve issues it’s currently facing within its country and by its very own people. To suppress the rising revolt within the country due to unemployment and other ill effects of COVID 19 etc, China is taking up wars just to bring its people together. Not only India, but they are also trying to cause distress in the countries located in the Southern China Sea, i.e Vietnam, Taiwan, and even HongKong.

The Money Game

Did you know that China’s revenue is more than billions, each year earned from mobile apps, and products used by Indians? And this revenue is invested by China in its armies. 

So the equation is simple, instead of feeding mind-boggling revenues to China, use products and apps that are homegrown. 

Chinese App

It is difficult to suddenly adopt a change, but the least you can do is by uninstalling Chinese mobile applications on your smartphones. This is not hating but a retaliation. Because China needs to know that they cannot kill and wound our soldiers, with our money. We can help give a blow to China where it will affect the most and that is its ECONOMY.

Boycott Chinese Apps & Chinese Products

Mark this as an opportunity for India to become self-reliant, and our Honorable Prime Minister has continuously stressed on MAKE IN INDIA movement. By boycotting the use of Chinese apps and Chinese products, we will build a new market and entrepreneurial opportunities which will further create employment and help generate revenue that will be used in India and by Indians.

Let’s take an example of one of the most popular Chinese app “TikTok” targeting ₹100 crore revenue by September 2020 from India. This is just one application, you can easily estimate the total revenue being generated from all popular Chinese mobile application from India. This is the reason, we have already published article featuring TikTok alternative apps to download.
