Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India], August 2 (ANI): In a bid to boycott Chinese products, a flower seller in Uttar Pradesh's Lucknow sold handmade floral rakhis on the eve of Raksha Bandhan.
Javed Khan, who sells floral rakhis, said that this time there is a lot of demand for floral rakhis and people have ordered these rakhis in advance.
Speaking to ANI, Khan said, "This year, as people are boycotting the Chinese products, there is a huge demand for handmade floral rakhis for the festival. Till now I have received over 250 orders for the same."
"We used to sell floral rakhis every year but this year the demand is high," added Khan.
Parmanand, a customer said, "This is the best idea to use indigenous and eco-friendly rakhis. As Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said to support 'Made in India' products and not Chinese ones, it is a good initiative. I have also come here to buy these rakhis." (ANI)
