New Delhi: Though e-commerce groceries, medical and food chains are overflowing with orders, promoter of big basket and Portea Medical, K Ganesh assured that his company has no intent to make profit out of the emerging coronavirus crisis.

‘Despite a very high volume of orders we assure that no extra money would be charged for delivery even in this grim situation. Our only request is with police to cooperate with our delivery teams,” K. Ganesh told media.

The Big Basket promoter earlier told a TV channel that on Tuesday evening two incidents, one happening in Lucknow and another in Hyderabad have not gone down well with e-commerce grocery or medical chains. At both places delivery teams, were prevented from supplying medicines to elderly people. In Lucknow, the delivery boy was roughed up by the cops.

A few other e-grocery and food chains have also complained about such misbehaviour by the law enforcement agencies. (IANS)
