China Non Grata:
Governments may have constraints in reacting promptly but people have no such constrains in reacting.
The Delhi Hotel and Guest House Owners Association (Dhurva) has taken a major decision today on the demand for boycott of Chinese goods by the Confederation of All India Traders (CAT). In view of the nefarious antics of China, it has been decided that henceforth no Chinese person will be entertained in Delhi’s hotel and guest houses. Delhi has about 3000 budget hotels and guest houses with about 75 thousand rooms.
While giving this information today, the General Secretary of Delhi Hotel and Guest House Owners Association said that due to the way China is dealing with India and the manner in which it has brutally massacred soldiers, all over Delhi there is an anger among hoteliers. At a time when CAT has campaigned for boycott of Chinese goods across the country, Delhi’s hotel and guest house businessmen will participate enthusiastically. In view of this, we have decided that henceforth no Chinese person will be entertained in any budget hotel or guest house in Delhi.
It may be noted that this association does not represent five star hotels in Delhi. Presently this move is symbolic as international travelling has not yet resumed but it tells the way forward for China in India.
