Prime Minister Modi had published photos of his visit to Lakshadweep on his social media account. Indians were invited to come to Lakshadweep instead of going abroad. Maldivian politicians mocking Prime Minister Modi’s invitation joked that Maldives has the best class system and India can’t match it.
After this statement of the Minister of the Government of Maldives came out, the boycott of Maldives campaign started on social media. A lot of people have canceled flight bookings and hotel bookings in Maldives and are publishing information about this on social media.
People like to travel to Maldives for many events including birthdays, wedding anniversaries. Maldives is located near Lakshadweep Islands. So, instead of Maldives, people want to go to Lakshadweep which is part of India.
Along with this, some netizens are also chanting the mantra of Atma Nirbhara India. They are questioning why Maldives when we have our own Lakshadweep island next to Maldives.
Most of them are posting with evidence that everything including hotel bookings worth lakhs of rupees have been canceled in the wake of the anti-India statement made by the Minister of Maldives.
If you look at it like that, China is responsible for the anti-India policy of the Maldives. China, which had friendly relations with India, made the Maldives government follow an anti-India policy. The head of government of Maldives, a puppet of China, objected to the Indian military base in Maldives and vacated it.
Prime Minister Modi, who made a clever strategy against this policy of Maldives, announced to the world the importance, beauty and joy of tourism of Lakshadweep Island, which is right next to Maldives. Due to this, tourists decided to go to Lakshadweep instead of Maldives. Fearing loss due to this move by India, the government minister of Maldives tried to disparage India and portray that India’s tourism facilities are not good. The citizens of India, who have protested against this, have called for a campaign to boycott Maldives.
