Mumbai: Days after 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a violent face-off with Chinese troops in the Galwan Valley in Ladakh, Union minister Ramdas Athawale has demanded a ban on restaurants that are selling Chinese food in India. Ramdas Athawale also appealed to the people to "boycott Chinese food", news agency ANI reported. Earlier, in a tweet, the Union minister said, "China is a country that betrays. India should boycott all products that are made in China. All restaurants and hotels that sell Chinese food in India should be closed down."His comments come at a time when relations between the two countries are at an all-time low in the past several decades and there is an increasing demand from various sections in India to boycott Chinese products.

Ever since the news of the violent face-off in which 20 soldiers, including a colonel-rank officer, were killed broke out, anti-China protests have been staged in various parts of the country to demand a boycott of Chinese products. On Wednesday, potests were held in Uttar Pradesh`s Gorakhpur-Basti zone against the killing of 20 Indian soldiers in Ladakh`s Galwan Valley. Agitators called for a boycott of Chinese products and burnt effigies of President Xi Jinping at several places.

In Gorakhpur, district BJP members and workers of the Hindu Yuva Vahini (HYV), a youth group floated by Yogi Adityanath, burnt an effigy of President Xi. The National Students` Union of India and Youth Congress activists set fire to the Chinese flag and Xi`s effigy at DDU Gorakhpur University gate.
