Special treatment for Tesla not in India's interest: Ola Chief Bhavish Aggarwal

“Tesla is free to come in and put up shop here and sell its cars,” Aggarwal told the Financial Times.

Ola Chief is resounding the 'Make In India for India' slogan as he is asking Tesla Chief to not expect any 'special treatment' if the EV major wants to ride on the Indian roads.
