Strongly back the idea of banning these #59Chinese 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. pic.twitter.com/WikfRlo5zY— Haroon Akram (@listenharoon) June 29, 2020
