New Delhi: Chinese electronics manufacturer Oppo India faced flak after its employee allegedly disrespected national flag. According to initial reports, protest erupted on Tuesday outside Oppo India’s Noida office after an employee allegedly tore the national flag and dumped it in a dustbin.
The Oppo India is facing backlash on social media with people asking Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to take strict action against the Chinese company.
The Oppo India, while speaking to BGR, said, “We are investigating the situation and will share an update once we verify all the facts.” Social media is abuzz with the news that Chinese company Oppo India has disrespected the Indian national flag and sharp reaction are pouring in against the company.
Earlier in the year, online commerce website Amazon (Canada) drew sharp criticism after doormats based on the Indian flag were found up for sale on the e-commerce platform. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj was quick to react, demanding Amazon Canada immediately remove the content and issue an unconditional apology for disrespecting the tricolour.
