he Indian government is officially a part of the TikTok family now. The government has created a Tiktok account under the username @mygovindia. Having gained 892K followers within a short span.
Tiktok is owned by a Chinese company known as ‘ByteDance’ and is a popular short-video platform. The app was in news last month when Youtubers started taking a stand against TikTokers and the alleged harmful content which the short video application carries. The app has recently been a target of many Indian citizens as well who have launched an online campaign asking Indians to delete Chinese apps and stop using goods made in China.
Some of these protesters even used the ‘Aatmanirbhar’ message of Prime Minister Modi as a reason to boycott Chinese goods.
Use these some alternative apps which are way more better than Chinese apps.
Try to help as much as possible..
If shopkeepers are gonna ban products then it will be more easier, as people won't be able to buy Chinese stuff.!!🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳#BoycottChineseApp #BoycottChineseProducts pic.twitter.com/gXyuqUQj3n
