    Most citizens can boycott Chinese products without much difficulty if they really want to. But what will the government that wants "phoren" collaboration for everything do? Will they b able to boycott China? And if they can't or won't, what is the point in people boycotting some toys or vegetables? The Prime Minister is said to be using a Chinese pen and Chinese mobile phone and we know that the Defence department was using Zoom meeting that has its server in China, where their government has full access, for important meetings in spite of the government itself (though through another of its departments) warned people not to use it! That too, when the Indian government has its own Free Software organisation in NRCFOSS and Kerala has its own ICFOSS that could easily have organised a Free, Libre and Open Source alternative!
