Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) General Secretary Praveen Khandelwal, in a counter to Gautam Adani, has disapproved of the Adani Group joining hands with Flipkart, “killers of small businesses”.
Replying to Adani, Chairman, Adani Group on Twitter, Khandelwal said: “Regrets. It’s the same #flipkart which is indulging in flouting rules & policies and facing pending investigations and #AdaniGroup joining hands with killers of small businesses.”
Khandelwal said Flipkart is flouting rules and policies and facing pending investigations and regretted Adani Group for joining hands “with killers of small businesses”.
Adani had, in an earlier tweet, announced the Flipkart tie up. “Homegrown e-commerce giant Flipkart is our new strategic partner. In the two-prong partnership, AdaniConneX will build their new Tier 4 data centre and Adani Logistics, India’s leader in logistics, will build their 534,000 sqft fulfilment centre. Thousands of new jobs in Mumbai,” he said.
Flipkart, India’s leading homegrown e-commerce marketplace, on Monday, announced a strategic and commercial partnership with the Adani Group, India’s largest multinational infrastructure company.
In this two-pronged partnership, Flipkart will work with Adani Logistics Ltd, the largest diversified end-to-end logistics service provider in the country and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Adani Ports & Special Economic Zone Ltd, to strengthen Flipkart’s supply chain infrastructure and further enhance its ability to serve its rapidly growing base of customers.
