Apart from this, the impact of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Vocal for Local was visible in the market. People kept their distance from goods made in China while shopping.

Holi Brought Life To The Market

The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) survey revealed that Holi revived the market. The business people and the public fully supported the mission of Atmanirbhar Bharat. According to CAT data, the sale of Chinese goods remained sluggish on Holi. A business worth more than Rs 5000 crore has been done in the national capital, Delhi.

People Do Not Want To Buy Chinese Goods

CAT’s National General Secretary Praveen Khandelwal said that after the violent clash in Galvan Valley in 2020, the people have an unfavourable attitude towards the goods made in China. Earlier customers used to ask only for cheap Chinese goods. But now, his thinking has changed. Its clear impact was visible on Holi shopping. Boycott of Chinese products is going on. CAT also wants to free India from goods made in China.

PM Modi Congratulated The Countrymen

Earlier, PM Modi had also wished Holi to their fellow citizens on social media platform X and said they should celebrate this festival of colours with love and harmony. I hope this Holi fills the lives of all of you with new energy and enthusiasm. On Sunday night, people participated in Holika Dahan programs nationwide.
