Oppo taking over Police Stations in Karnataka

In continuation of our earlier discussions I am posting here some photographs :

As we can observe, all Police stations in Ramanagara sport the OPPO brand so prominently that it appears that the Police Station belongs to OPPO. In the case of the Women’s Police Station, even the word “Ramanagara” is absent.

We can also observe that in the case of the Town police station, there is also an earlier Airtel sponsored board which at least relatively shows more prominence to the Police Station.

There is no doubt that any marketing manager would be happy to have their brand displayed so prominently across different police stations which create a hugely positive impression in the minds of people who also see OPPO brand name across many of the mobile shops in Ramanagara. Even simple hoardings in prominent places in Ramanagara should cost lakhs of rupees per year on the high way at least. Association with Police is completely misleading as if OPPO belongs to Government.

This is plain cheating and not marketing.

Obviously the decision has been taken by some body who either does not understand marketing or has been suitably impressed by the marketing manager of OPPO.

When people are fighting against Chinese military aggression and dumping of its products, this OPPO invasion is unacceptable.

I wish suitable action is taken to remove all sponsor names in the Police Station name boards including Airtel boards which are also found in Bangalore.

I urge the High Court of Karnataka to suo moto take up the issue and take action or some PIL advocate take up the cause.
