This clearly shows that under a well thought out strategy, China is trying to capture India’s retail market, which the traders and citizens of India will not allow to succeed in any way.
Overtaking China will increase Indian small scale industries

Along with this, the governments also failed in this matter and could not understand China’s intentions to capture India’s trade. Due to which no policy was made regarding options in the country. Now this issue is understood and talks will be started with the government regarding the issues of making Indian goods in sufficient quantity as a strong alternative to Chinese products, as well as under a strategy, India’s small scale industries will be required in this matter. Prosperity initiatives will be taken.
