Ban restaurants selling Chinese food in India: Union minister Ramdas Athawale

Days after 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a violent face-off with Chinese troops in the Galwan Valley in Ladakh, Union minister Ramdas Athawale has demanded a ban on restaurants that are selling Chinese food in India.

Ramdas Athawale also appealed to the people to "boycott Chinese food", news agency ANI reported.

Earlier, in a tweet, the Union minister said, "China is a country that betrays. India should boycott all products that are made in China. All restaurants and hotels that sell Chinese food in India should be closed down."

His comments come at a time when relations between the two countries are at an all-time low in the past several decades and there is an increasing demand from various sections in India to boycott Chinese products.
