Paytm CEO trolled for criticising WhatsApp payment feature on Twitter

The statement did not go well with the Twitterati who took the entrepreneur head on

February 16, 2018 / 09:04 PM IST

Paytm CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma cooked up a storm on Wednesday when he tweeted on Wednesday that Facebook, which owns instant messaging app Whatsapp, was flouting the rules of a level playing field.


“After failing to win war against India’s open internet with cheap tricks of free basics, Facebook is again in play. Killing beautiful open UPI system with its custom close garden implementation. I am surprised, champions of open @India_Stack, let it happen!” Sharma had written in the tweet.


The statement, however, did not go well with the Twitterati who took the entrepreneur head on.
