Escalating their business rivalry on Twitter, Flipkart co-founder Sachin Bansal on Friday took pot shots at Snapdeal saying India should not be blamed for the latter’s failure to hire “great engineers.” This is the latest instance where a top executive of successful technology enterprise has taken to the social media to express opinion against a rival.
Sachin Bansal’s tweet comes against the backdrop of a report where Snapdeal co-founder Rohit Bansal was quoted as saying, “If you think about the landscape in India, not too many product companies got built here.” Sachin Bansal tweeted: “Don’t blame India for your failure to hire great engineers. They join for culture and challenge.” He also tweeted the link to the report which had said that Snapdeal has decided to look abroad for programmers.
This is not the first time that Sachin Bansal has taken to the microblogging site to vent his opinion. Recently, he had tweeted in support of the controversial ‘Airtel Zero’ plan. However, the e-retailer backed out from being part of the plan as it had found the telecom firm’s marketing platform to be violating the principle of net neutrality after further study.
