    Shouldn't we be boycotting the goods manufactured at the "industrial park comprising of Chinese small and medium industries coming up at Sanand in Gujarat"? We have asked for a boycott of Chinese items used during Diwali. Why not these? Why is the Gujarat Government doing business with those who are supporting stan in not banning Masood Azhar and our NSG membership?
