New Delhi: Local man has come forward alleging his family of compelling him to buy everything from Reliance Fresh store. Yashjit Patel, 28, confirmed to our reporters, “Yes it is absolute truth. My whole family made me buy all groceries and vegetables from Reliance Fresh store. I tried to buy those thing from somewhere but they wouldn’t allow me to do so.”
Yashjit continued in helpless tone, “It is me who do all the buying stuff for home so I should be able to decide from where to buy. But I am never given such opportunity. There are many other convenience stores nearby our place.
There is D-mart, Spencer’s, Foodworld and many other small retailer shops. But I am categorically asked by my family to choose Reliance Fresh.”
He added with little bit of irritation in voice, “I am a free person and I work as software engineer. My family should give me freedom to shop from anywhere. Why is their love dependent on convenience store from where I buy? Is this true love and free market? I guess it is absolutely not.”
He confined to our reporter like a professional whistleblower, “I think my family has a close family friend in Reliance Fresh working managerial staff. I don’t know full extent of the nexus but there is definitely at least one family friend working in Reliance Fresh.”
When contacted by our reporters, key members of his family denied all allegations. As one member adds, “Yashjit is free person and he is free to buy his apples or spinach or rice or anything else from any shop he wishes. There is no pressure of any kind.”
