Aurangabad, Apr 25 (PTI) A businessman in Maharashtra"s Parli Vaijanath tied his electric scooter to a donkey with a rope and paraded it around the town as a mark of protest against its manufacture for not fixing the fault in the two-wheeler after it stopped working just 15 days post delivery.Feeling upset after poor response from the company to rectify the problem in the vehicle, the businessman, Sachin Gitte, tied the "faulty" e-scooter to a donkey and paraded it across the town in Beed district on Sunday.Gitte had booked the battery-driven scooter of a well-known company by paying Rs 20,000 in September last year. On January 21, 2022, he paid the remaining Rs 65,000 and got the delivery of the scooter on March 24.Talking to PTI, he said, "I purchased the scooter by paying the entire amount but it stopped working on April 8. I found the customer care details and tried to approach the company, but the company didn"t respond well. We can find God if we try, but these company people were tough to find." Out of frustration, the businessman even thought of setting ablaze the vehicle."Somehow they sent a mechanic, but he could not resolve the issue. My scooter stood at one place for a long time. I realized this scooter is of no use and even felt like setting it ablaze," Gitte said.This is when he hit upon the protest idea of a donkey pulling the two-wheeler.Gitte said, "I will not stop just at this. I will file a case in the consumer preparations in this regard are on." PTI AW RSY RSY
