Lucknow: Senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar said on Sunday that people should boycott Chinese products and emphasised that the focus should be on 'swadeshi' products.
"The Government of India will deal with China in its own way, but we must boycott Chinese goods," Kumar said in Lucknow while attending a programme on the eve of Rakshabandhan, according to a statement.
His comments come in the backdrop of the Doka La standoff.
He claimed that the government of India has already put Pakistan and China in the dock in the global context, the statement said.

Speaking about the Rakshabandhan, Kumar said it was a festival to honour women.
"A society which honours the women, divinity dwells there," he said.
