Shiv Sena slammed the BJP government for banning 59 Chinese apps. Shiv Sena called the ban digital revenge and also stated that it will not make any difference to the Chinese economy. The central government imposed the ban on Tik Tok and other 58 Chinese apps for the security of data. The decision was taken after the India- China clash in the Galwan Valley on June 15 in which 20 Indian soldiers lost their lives.
However, Shiv Sena questioned the centre’s decision and said why was the ban imposed at this time if the intelligence agencies knew that these apps are a threat to national security. According to the BJP government, many complains were registered related to the misuse of these apps, and data of Indian citizens was intruded by China.
Shiv Sena slams BJP government for banning Chinese apps
As per Shiv Sena, this decision will not make any difference to Chinese as they have enough investment in India and why did centre allow these apps to function so many years if they were a treat. The central government claimed that data from these apps were used by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) and intelligence agencies.
Shiv Sena also alleged that Chinese troops have refused to move from Galwan Valley and banning the apps will not change the ground realities. Taking a dig at BJP, Shiv Sena also asked what will happen to the BJP Tik Tok users who turned from politician to Tik Tok stars.
