Trinamool Congress leader Mahua Moitra, in a series of tweets on April 28, flagged customer privacy violation at a sporting goods outlet in Delhi. She said she was asked to provide her phone number and email ID while making a cash purchase.

“Want to buy my dad trousers for Rs 1,499 in CASH at @Decathlon_India Ansal Plaza and manager insists I need to put in my mobile number and email ID to purchase,” Mahua Moitra said. “Sorry @Decathlon_India, you are violating privacy laws and consumer laws by insisting on this.”
