Mathura, 2017.08.11 (PTI): Janmashtami celebrations in Mathura this year have a message – boycott Chinese goods.
No Chinese lights or decoration items will be used in the celebrations in the shrine complex of Sri Krishna Janmasthan. The priests and the office-bearers of the Janmasthan have called for a boycott of Chinese products in the wake off the Doklam standoff.
“Besides saints and mahants, the common man will also be associated in this protest against Chinese products on Janmashtami,” Secretary of the Sri Krishna Janmasthan Seva Sansthan Kapil Sharma said yesterday.
Janmashtami will be celebrated on August 15. The organisation decided to boycott Chinese products in the wake of India and China being locked in a faceoff in the Doklam area of the Sikkim sector for over 50 days, he said.
Sharma said they will also urge the government to ban the import of Chinese goods. Lord Krishna’s birth anniversary here will be celebrated without using any Chinese products, he said.
