Sriharsha Majety, Swiggy's CEO, posted a lengthy response today to a viral blog post that claimed to have been written by an anonymous group of former and soon-to-leave employees of the food delivery startup. Majety indicated that the post's authors may not be former Swiggy employees in the first place ("but that’s for another day").
