When a salesman of a Mahindra car showroom mocked the farmers who came to buy a truck, little did he know that he was judging a book by its cover. What happened in the next thirty minutes was a big slap on the salesman's face as he couldn't able to keep up his promise. The incident of an awful mockery by the salesman and the comeback of the farmers have become the talk of the town, with the visuals going viral on social media.
According to reports, a group of farmers went to a Mahindra car showroom in Tumakuru, Karnataka to buy a new pick-up truck. When they entered the showroom, a salesman has mocked him over this attire and appearance. Along with the salesman, some employees at the showroom had laughed at the farmers and the salesman told them that they can't be able to afford the vehicle and questioned how they are going to buy this vehicle, worth Rs 10 lakh, when they don't have even Rs 10 with them.
In a video, a farmer is heard saying, "He (salesman) said, I wouldn't even have Rs 10." Kempe Gowda, a farmer from Ramanapalya, said, "They laughed at us and pointed towards our clothes. They felt that I'm not in a position to pay the money. One of their field officers told me, 'You don't even have Rs 10, you will buy this vehicle?' He even said that those who come to buy a vehicle don't come to the showroom the way we had."
One of the car showroom employees had told the farmers that he would deliver the car to them if they come with Rs 10 lakh in 30 minutes. Kempe Gowda said, "We were standing there and the employees were laughing at us. No one came to support us." However, Gowda and his fellow farmers had informed the car showroom employees to register their booking.
After being informed to come with the money in a stipulated time, Gowda returned back with Rs 10 lakh in 30 minutes and his comeback with the money had shocked the employees. On the other hand, while the farmers came back with the money as they were told by the showroom, the salesman has failed to keep his promise of delivering the car they wanted as soon as they return with the money. The car wasn't delivered as the showroom had a long waitlist for the car delivery.
The salesman would have probably thought that the farmers won't come back with Rs 10 lakh in 30 minutes and gave a promise. However, Kempe Gowda came with the money and asked the showroom to deliver the truck. In a video, Gowda can be heard saying that they would go to the police to resolve this issue in a fair way. He said, "We can file a police complaint. If there is a fault on our side, we will apologize. On your side, you must promise to never treat farmers this way." The farmers had left the showroom without buying the car.
