Indian App Highlights Backlash Against Chinese Products Amid Border Row

India’s top trending free app on Google’s mobile app store, with more than 5 million downloads since late May, is called “Remove China Apps” and does exactly what it says on the label.

Its popularity comes amid calls for a boycott of Chinese mobile apps in India as a border dispute fuels a backlash against products from China.

Chinese companies have faced occasional opposition for years in India, where some supporters of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) advocate self reliance.
