Protest against investment from Chinese company Alibaba, Zomato employees burn T-shirts

Kolkata: Protest among the general public on the India-China border dispute case is increasing. A group of employees of Zomato, the online delivery platform for food, protested against China’s investment in the company by tearing and burning their official T-shirts in Kolkata. On Sunday, these employees opposed investment by Alibaba, the company of Chinese billionaire Jack Ma.

On June 15, 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a clash with Chinese soldiers in the Galwan Valley of Ladakh. In protest, the employees of Jomato protested at Behala in the southwest of the city on Saturday. Some employees claimed that they had left Jomato’s job.

In 2018, Ant Financ, a unit of Chinese giant Alibaba, invested $ 21 million for a 14.7 percent stake in Zomato. Ant Financial has recently invested more than $ 150 million in Zomato.

A protestor said that Chinese companies are making profits from here. At the same time, his army is attacking our soldiers. They are trying to take away our land. It will not be allowed to happen. Another protestor said that we will be hungry, but will not work in a company in which China has investment.

Due to the Corona virus epidemic, Zomato had shown 13 percent of its total employees, 520 out of the way. There is no immediate response from Jomato about whether the protesters were employees who have been removed from their jobs.
