A Maharashtra-based citizen staged a unique protest against OLA company’s electric scooter after being ignored by the company’s customer care. According to a report by MoneyControl, Sachin Gitte, a resident of Beed in Maharashtra, complained about his scooter stopped working just six days after he purchased it. After lodging multiple complaints but receiving no response from customer care, Gitte decided to stage a protest by tying his scooter to a donkey and parading it around the town. The user also rolled out banners, urging people to not trust the company and its product.
In a report by ABP News, Gitte had booked the scooter in September 2021 to later receive it on March 24. Just six days later, the vehicle stopped working. Technicians attended his calls and even arranged a visit by the OLA mechanic but it couldn’t help him. As per the user, the company couldn’t provide him with concrete solutions, and hence out of frustration, he staged a unique way of protest.
