Twitter was all smiles on Tuesday after a differently-abled delivery executive for Zomato received an electric vehicle as a gift from the food delivery platform. Ramu Sahu from Bewar, Rajasthan, had gone viral on the Internet earlier this month after a video of him using a hand-powered tricycle to deliver food was shared widely online. After the video went viral, many called on Zomato to gift Mr Sahu an electric vehicle, while others praised his resilience and willpower.
On Tuesday, the founder and CEO of Zomato, Deepinder Goyal, announced that the company had gifted Mr Sahu an electric vehicle to make his job easier.
"Our delivery partner Ramu Sahu has gracefully accepted the electric vehicle that we were keen on him having," wrote Mr Goyal on Twitter, sharing pictures of Mr Sahu on his new red vehicle.
