Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar wasn’t hazarding a guess on Aamir Khan’s Snapdeal row when he reportedly confessed that a dedicated BJP team had launched a concerted campaign to cause severance of the actor’s association with the e-commerce giant.
Soon after Aamir spoke about his wife’s fear on growing religious intolerance in the country while suggesting the family should leave India, right-wing groups had carried out a campaign to downgrade Snapdeal’s rating on Google Play and App store.
A nervous Snapdeal was forced to issue a statement.
It had said, “Snapdeal is neither connected nor plays a role in comments made by Aamir Khan in his personal capacity. Snapdeal is a proud Indian company built by passionate young Indians focused on building an inclusive digital India. Every day we are positively impacting thousands of small businesses and millions of consumers in India. We will continue towards our mission of creating one million successful online entrepreneurs in India.”
