Bezos, during his visit to India for the Amazon SMBHAV event, delivered a package to a local kirana store amid protests from the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT).

The Amazon chief also met differently-abled people that were hired under Amazon's new programme. In a series of tweets, Bezos praised the programme.
