  • Zomato is logging out of the logout campaign, Goyal said

After couple of letters from Zomato failed to pacify Rahul Singh, President of the National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI), to stop the #logout campaign, Zomato Founder, CEO, and Chief of Product Deepinder Goyal took to Twitter on Thursday in a bid to embarrass him for the “Gold” programme of The Beer Cafe.

“I welcome the NRAI president, Rahul Singh embracing the Gold standard at his own restaurants. Welcome to Gold, [email protected] _India,” he said in a tweet that had images describing the benefits that The Beer Cafe offers its customers under the “Gold” programme.

Zomato has been accused by the NRAI of “unethical” deep discounting practices for its “Gold” programme.

“This logout campaign as it seems now, is driven by Rahul Singh, along with participation of a few large restaurant owners, to use the NRAI platform to sabotage aggregators and benefit themselves,” Goyal further tweeted.

“Zomato is logging out of the logout campaign. We have said enough and we are getting back to work. I am confident better business sense will prevail at the end,” the Zomato CEO added.
