Protesting against China, Asansol BJP workers rally to burn effigy of 'Chinese Prime Minister Kim Jong-un'

Kolkata/Asansol/IBNS: In a rather hilarious incident, some Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers from West Bengal's Asansol, who were quite-justifiably angry upon China over the recent deadly face-off with the Indian soldiers in eastern Ladakh, took out a protest rally against Beijing but got confused North Korea leader Kim Jong-un with the "Chinese Prime Minister."

In a video which went viral on social media, one BJP worker named Ganesh said, "We have taken out a rally protesting against the Ladakh incident. We will also burn an effigy of China's Prime Minister Kim John (Kim John-un)..."

The video was also shared by Sanjay Nirupam, the leader of BJP's arch-rival Congress, on micro-blogging site Twitter.

Unlike India, China is ruled not by a PM but by President Xi Jinping.

More than four decades after the last fatality occurred during a conflict at the India-China border, at least 20 Indian personnel were killed in a conflict with the Chinese military in Galwan Valley, which is close to Aksai Chin, an area that is controlled by China but claimed by both the countries.

In a strong reaction to the violent standoff, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said his nation wants peace but can give a befitting reply, if instigated.

Following the deadline clash in Ladakh, there has been a cry from common people of India to boycott Chinese products in a bid to give a befitting reply to Beijing.
