Food delivery giant Zomato CEO Deepinder Goyal faced netizens trolling for sharing "war room" pictures ahead of the heavy influx of orders on the occasion of New Year's Eve.
Netizens said the management of the company should have expected the increased pressure on its servers and worked on it in the run-up to New Year's Eve.

Netizens' reactions to Deepinder Goyal's post
“This is not an achievement. This shows your product is not at par and you are making people work on weekend. Planning and execution of project looks damn poor,” an X user wrote.
“Pretty shameless to put out a photo of managers chit-chatting to hide the fact that it’s only the 'delivery partners' working without any break for new year. And quite dense to call it a 'war room' when an actual war (genocide) is happening elsewhere in the world,” quipped another X user.
“I believe all these people have a family waiting at house to celebrate New Year. Even though I worked yesterday but not till 12am, how are you going to ensure that their family is also not missing the party? It's very sad to work for others' party when we can't enjoy,” said another X user
"Sir the real FIGHTERS are on the grounds The delivery boys Not the one shown in the above picture," another wrote.
