Traders' body CAIT has criticised Xiaomi India MD Manu Kumar Jain for "disrespecting the sentiments of Indian citizens". CAIT's Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal said that Jain had "mocked" the 'Boycott Chinese Products' campaign by saying the sentiment existed only on social media and is a result of "mob mentality". Khandelwal also thanked actress Kangana Ranaut for supporting the campaign.
@CAITIndia Secretary General Shri @praveendel slams @XiaomiIndia Chief @manukumarjain for disrespecting the sentiments of Indian citizens. Instead of standing in solidarity with the mood of the nation he is attempting to trivialise it for business gains. #BoycottChineseProducts pic.twitter.com/l7LjR1elmR— CONFEDERATION OF ALL INDIA TRADERS ( CAIT) (@CAITIndia) June 27, 2020
