Twitterati takes a dig at PepsiCo for suing Gujarat potato farmers

PepsiCo owns the brand, Lays, a popular off-the-shelf potato chip food item for which the cultivation of potatoes is key.
Nine farmers from Sabarkantha and Aravalli districts have been dragged to court by PepsiCo for allegedly growing a variety of potatoes for which it has claimed Plant Variety Protection (PVP) rights.
Appalled by the move, avid Twitter users mock the MNC's move of seeking damages worth Rs 1 crore for something as basic as potatoes.
