Talking to reporters in Phagwara, Sena's state vice-president Inderjit Karwal claimed that the public was already "wary of buying" China-made products and the central government should initiate measures to ban them to hit China's economy.

"On one hand, China is provoking Pakistan to foment trouble in India, while on the other hand, it was vetoing in the United Nations in the matter of declaring Masood Azhar a global terrorist. Now, it is having an evil eye on the India territory under its sinister expansionist designs and in indulging in intimidating tactics," he said.

Reminding the Narendra Modi-led Union government of "China's historical penchant for backstabbing India", the Shiv Sen said China and Pakistan "would never be friends with India".

"It was high time that China was taught a befitting lesson by banning its products and Pakistan too dealt with sternly", it added.
