'We will not provide accommodation to Chinese nationals' says Delhi Hotels and Restaurant Owners Association
The association will be contacting hotel associations of other states to make a similar decision and will also contact Star Hotels in Delhi to join this movement
The Delhi Hotel and Restaurant Owners Association has recently announced that they will be boycotting Chinese goods and also will not provide accommodation to Chinese nationals in over 3,000 budget hotels and guest houses across the city. The association has taken this step owing to border standoff with China.
Besides, it has also written to the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) and has extended full support to its boycott Chinese goods campaign. In its letter to CAIT, Delhi Hotel and Restaurant Owners Association said, “our association has decided to wholeheartedly support the campaign of CAIT and as such we have decided to boycott Chinese goods which are being used in our hotels and restaurants and henceforth we shall not be using any Chinese products in our establishments.”
The association said that it has also decided not to provide rooms to "any Chinese national at a time when China is repeatedly in attacking mode on our brave Indian forces". The letter further informed that the association will be approaching hotel associations of other states to make a similar decision and will also contact Star Hotels in Delhi to join this movement.
CAIT Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal while welcoming the decision of the Hotels Association said that it is quite evident that people from all walks of life are more willing to join its campaign. Besides, CAIT will also make an appeal to farmers, transporters, small industries, consumers, hawkers, self entrepreneurs, women entrepreneurs, etc to join the campaign.
