VIJAYAWADA: In a bid to promote use of swadeshi goods among the youth, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh(RSS)-affiliated Swadeshi Jagran Manch (SJM) of Andhra Pradesh chapter launched a website ‘swadeshijagranmanchap.com’ at a programme held here on Saturday. 

Addressing a press conference, SJM State organiser Kota Krishna Bhagwan said that the aim of the website is to encourage the use of ‘Made in India’ products and boycotting the usage of Chinese goods to decrease their GDP. “China is selling products in our country and making huge profits out of it. But instead of extending support to India, it is helping Pakistan,” said Krishna. 

He further added that sensing the tension on the border and China’s threat to India, local traders should not promote Chinese products. Disclosing the plans of SJM in the State, Krishna said that a year-long campaign has been planned to create awareness among traders and the public on how Chinese goods adversely impact domestic production and push the government to relook at its trade policy.  

Adding that awareness campaigns will be conducted at all educational institutions across the State, Krishna said,  “SJM will conduct a 5km run in the city on October 6 involving sports personalities and celebrities. A three-day ‘Swadeshi Mela’ will be also hosted at Swaraj Maidan to encourage the purchase of swadeshi goods.”

 The state organiser added that the campaign would also involves street plays, signature campaigns, essay writing competitions and public meetings. Pamphlets would be distributed to traders and public to avoid usage of Chinese products in the larger interest of the country.

SJM State convener Uppalapati Venkata Rama Raju, district convener M Naveen and city convener Hari Babu were also present.
