Oppo India has landed is unexpected controversy because of the action of one its employee’s, who reportedly tore the Indian national flag and dumped it in a dustbin. As expected, the incident broke out pretty quickly and soon a bunch of people gathered outside Oppo’s Noida office to protest against the company. These people included employees from Oppo and members of Vishva Hindu Parishad.
To handle the crowd, over 200 policemen were sent to the site as people there went out of control. A lot of people who came to protest against the action brought the Indian Flag and were seen waving it aggressively outside the Oppo India Noida office.
When we reached out to Oppo India they said,” We deeply regret this unfortunate incident and are extending all our corporationto the concerned authorities. and will take appropriate action soon.”
The spokesperson further said, “Oppo as a brand has deep respect for Indias and is strongly rootedas well as localised in the country andour 99 percent of our employees are Indians.”
It would be unfair to blame Oppo India squarely for the action of one of its employees who did such a shameful activity in his individual capacity. We do believe no company, including Oppo India, which has a strong presence in India will try to promote such kind of unpardonable activity from their premises as they are here to do business and not to hurt the sentiment of Indian nationals.
Having said that not it needs to seen how fast does Oppo take action against the rogue employee and what was the reason behind his action. We will keep you updated of the developments as it unfolds.
