After a full year of controversies for Amazon, the Dindoshi Court in Mumbai has issued a notice to Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray, alleging that MNS workers tore the company’s poster as its app did not have Marathi language option.
The party has also expressed displeasure over Amazon not offering a Marathi language interface on its platform. Last month MNS started a campaign, ‘No Marathi, No Amazon’, as well. Earlier this month, MNS leader Akhil Chitre also wrote to Maharashtra minister Subhash Desai highlighting that Amazon app is difficult to use for Marathi-speakers due to absence of the language. Then the party also wrote to Amazon on December 22, warning of agitation if their demands are not fulfilled.
