As many as 61 per cent respondents said they had ‘no faith’ in Rahul Gandhi over the issue of national security; 14.4 per cent said they had ‘some faith’ in him. Over 68 per cent of those surveyed felt Indians will boycott Chinese products, but 31 per cent people will continue to buy goods made in China.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said, “As for what you saw in the media, for example, some people alleged that casualties on the Chinese side amounted to 40, I can tell you for sure that this is fake news.”
