Earlier last month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi distributed 5,100 e-rickshaws under the Mudra Yojna Scheme in Noida. Post his speech, PM Modi took a ride in one of the e-rickshaw, which bore sponsor logos of Reliance and Ola.
More than a month later, the photo came to the notice of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, and he decided to tweet about it. Below is what he tweeted.

Kejriwal has posted the picture on Twitter poking fun at the PM with the question – Is this an ad for OLA and Reliance? No sooner had the photo of the PM been tweeted, Twitter users attacked Kejriwal with a barrage of tweets and photos of the CM in various situations asking if the CM was indeed advertising for all these purposes.
The 5,100 e-rickshaws distributed by the Prime Minister under the Mudra Yojna Scheme in Noida was a part of the “Start up India Stand up India” initiative. Under Digital India initiative these e-rickshaws are linked to Ola fleet services.
Customers can avail this service via their mobile apps. Charging stations for 50 e-rickshaws have been set up by Bharitya Micro Credit societies while service centers for 250 e-rickshaws are also in the process of being introduced. Payments can be made via cash or Freecharge platform
