Paytm CEO’s response to Kejriwal on ad featuring Modi wins hearts of twitterati

A war of words broke-out between Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Paytm’s founder and CEO, Vijay Shekhar Sharma, over an advertisement in which the latter congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his bold decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes.

While Kejriwal termed it as ‘utterly shameful’, Sharma gave him a befitting reply which has now gone viral on the micro blogging site. 

“Paytm is the biggest beneficiary of PM’s announcement. Next day PM appears in its ads. What’s the deal Mr. PM?” Kejriwal tweeted. 

Soon after this Sharma tweeted, “Dear Sir, the biggest beneficiary is our country. We are just a tech startup, trying to solve financial inclusion and make India proud.”

Sharma’s this response has so far fetched nearly 10,000 retweets.

It is believed that the removal of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes from the economy will encourage people to switch to mobile wallets till fresh currency notes are issued.

This is not the first time when Kejriwal has attacked PM Modi for appearing in an advertisement of a private firm. Earlier, Reliance Industries had used PM Modi's image in its full-page ad for Jio announcement in September. At that time too Kejriwal had tweeted against the advertisement that appeared in national dailies.
