Some employees of Jomato, an app-based company that delivers food to people’s homes, tore and burned the company’s T-shirts in Kolkata, protesting against China, after 20 Indian soldiers were killed in violent clashes with Chinese soldiers in the Galvan Valley.
During the demonstration in Behala, some of the people involved claimed that he had quit Jomato’s job because of China’s investment in it. Also, he requested people not to order food through Zomato.
Significantly, Ant Financial, which is associated with Chinese company Alibaba, bought $ 14 million in Jomato in 2018 and bought 14.7 percent of its shares (shares). Zomato recently raised $ 150 million from Ant Financial.
A person involved in the demonstration said, “Chinese companies are making profits from here and are attacking our soldiers. They want to grab our land. Can not let this happen. ‘
Significantly, in May, Jomato laid off 13 percent of its employees, 520 people, citing the Kovid-19 epidemic. There is no immediate response from Zomato in this regard. And no information has been received about whether the protesters are employees fired.
