The Indian government has blocked 59 apps with Chinese links that included the very popular TikTok, WeChat and UC Browse. This comes amid a huge economic backlash against China following the June 15-16 clashes at Ladakh in which 20 Indian soldiers were killed. Within minutes of the announcement, the Indian government's TikTok account MyGov was disabled. MyGov had 1.1 million followers. The decision comes a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi said India has given a "befitting response" to China. PM Modi also spoke of the countrywide call for boycott of Chinese goods, juxtaposing it against the government's "Atma Nirbhar Bharat" campaign. In a statement released by the Centre on June 29, the government said the apps were blocked "in view of information available they are engaged in activities which is prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order.” The Ministry of Electronics and Information and Technology in a statement said it had received an ‘exhaustive recommendation’ from the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre & the Ministry of Home Affairs. This comes amid a countrywide call from traders and civil society to boycott Chinese products and services. Earlier, Centre had put a bar on Chinese equipment for the 4G upgradation of the state-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd & sacking of a Chinese firm that had a Rs 471-crore railways contract.
