This is what users on Twitter are saying about the 59 Chinese apps banned by India:
@RahulKanwal: Strongly back the idea of banning these 59 Chinese apps. Most were stealing data of Indian citizens. In any case China doesn’t allow international companies to run their apps in mainland China. Economic cooperation cannot be a one way street. Hit China where it hurts most. Jai Ho
@PalkiSu: India bans 59 Chinese apps including TikTok and PUBG. The battlelines are drawn. Standoff on the ground remains, digital strike begins.
@TheJaggi: Govt bans 59 Chinese apps. Good first move. Modi govt making right moves to make Chinese companies pay for the rogue acts of the Chinese Communist Party. Next it needs to ban other non-essential imports and then many more such steps.
@Saidarshan: When you know that you did nothing to avenge the death of Indian Army soldiers, so you ban 59 Chinese Apps and take advantage of popular public opinion.
