At the same time, party spokesperson Manish Tiwari also welcomed the government’s decision, although he also raised the question and tweeted that it is a good idea to ban the Chinese app, but what about the money received from Chinese Telecom and other companies in the PM Cares fund? Is this a good idea or a bad one?
Banning Chinese Apps is a good idea.
What about receiving money in @PMCares from Chinese Telco’s & other Chinese companies?
Good idea or bad?
In China everything eventually is owned or at least controlled by CCP + PLA + Intel Orgs.
Together they are called DEEP STATE SIRE! https://t.co/HZ8Lre1uUr
