The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has strongly criticised China’s move to block India’s bid at the United Nations to get a ban on Jaish-e-Mohamed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar. CAIT is not happy with how China backstabbed India and has now threatened to boycott products from China.

The body said it has taken a strong exception to the behaviour of China, which supported openly.

“We don’t see how would make up for its stand and continue to work on bilateral talks to promote stability within the region,” it added.

A governing council meeting of the CAIT was held on April 2nd 2016 that decided to boycott Chinese made goods with immediate effect. The decision will now be ratified at the National Traders Conclave will be ongoing. The conclave started yesterday, April 4th and will end tomorrow, April 6th 2016.

“CAIT would strongly agitate against Chinese goods and pledge to burn holi of Chinese goods made in China,” CAIT’s National President B C Bhartia and Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal said in a joint statement.

On the 31st of March 2016, China had requested United Nations committee, which is considering a ban on Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar, to keep on hold the designation. It used its veto power to block the motion by Indian when every other country was in support.

After the terror attack on Pathankot airbase on January 2, India in February wrote to the UN calling for immediate action to list Azhar under the Al-Qaeda Sanctions committee.
