AS BORDER STANDOFF BETWEEN INDIA & CHINA CONTINUES, MANY SCHOOLS IN MUMBAI TOLD STUDENTS NOT TO BUY ‘MADE IN CHINA’ STATIONERY : As the border standoff between India and China continues, many schools in Mumbai plan to tell students to boycott Chinese-made school stationery and other products. The Mumbai Principals Association, which represents schools following the state board curriculum, in its recent executive committee meeting, decided to dissuade parents and students from purchasing ‘Made in China’ water bottles, tiffin boxes, pencil boxes, sketch pens, measurement rulers, writer pads and erasers. The principals believe this symbolic protest will inculcate a feeling of patriotism among the students. Prashant Redij of MPA said there won’t be any compulsion on students or parents to ‘boycott” Chinese products. “China is creating troubles for India. It continues to oppose India’s bid for a permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council. At a time when the country is dealing with problems in Jammu and Kashmir, it has raked up the border issue in Sikkim to distract the country. The Chinese media is instigating people against the country. In such a situation, why should our money go to China?” he said. Rediff.com : 10th. July,17
