Indian market is stocked with 100% Chinese products and it is not really a bad move on the part of Youth BJP to tell people to boycott Chinese items to encourage Indian manufacturers but what went wrong in their Facebook communication is something you have to see.
The communication that starts with “I pledge, I will not buy China items this festival Diwali and Christmas” is all about boycotting Chinese products to increase the sale of Indian items in the market. Ironically, the campaign that screams “Be Indian.. Buy Indian..” has a picture of American actress, Natalie Portman in a pose that looks like she is taking a pledge. We get it that Youth BJP’s social media team wanted to use a picture of a woman taking pledge but why you no take an Indian woman, Youth BJP? If you think this picture is a scam, take a look here.
Check out the spelling of the hashtag used. We wonder if anyone will be able to follow and communicate with the party’s hashtag- #Bycottchina!
