Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has slammed the Paytm boss, Vijay Shekhar Sharma, for the display of insensitivity and arrogance during the company’s annual party.
Kejriwal demanded an answer from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was blamed for endorsing the e-wallet company through series of full page advertisements soon after the announcement on note ban.
Reacting to Janta Ka Reporter story, Kejriwal tweeted, “This is shameful. Modi ji owes an answer to the nation why he supported this company at the cost of ordinary citizens.”

In the video, now gone viral, Sharma is seen using abusive language and flaunting his sudden success in short time.
At one point he says, “What others couldn’t do in 10 years we achieved in just one year.”
His rant, perceived to be utterly insensitive at a time when millions have suffered due to note ban and close to 200 people have lost their lives, continues in the video. Sharma goes on to warn those who will not be with him adding that ‘they will cry.’
Those in the know of corporate culture, may find his behaviour throughout the video in extremely poor taste and unbecoming of a top executive of a successful company.
