Netizens in India have a huge meltdown on Twitter as #ChineseDealerAirtel trends demanding ban on Saturday after news surfaced that Bharti Airtel awarded Rs 300 crore telecom infrastructure expansion contract to Chinese company Huawei.

Alongwith that hashtag #ChiniLoverAirtel began trending on micro-blogging site Twitter on March 12. Netizens are highly disappointed with deal that has surfaced between Chinese company Huawei and Airtel. They are angry about the fact that nearly after one year of Galwan Valley clash where country has lost the lives of Indian 20 soldiers, Bharti Airtel decided to have this contract which according to them is “not acceptable”.

Although the news of the deal between both the companies broke on March 6 but the anger can be seen clearly on Twitter after almost a week, where netizens are actively posting tweets on hashtags.

However, Some people even said that there is no point to call ban on Airtel as the title sponsor of IPL is Vivo which is also a chinese firm.
