THEY HAVE ORGANISED AND MANAGED THE EVENT VERY BADLY … Mr. Deepak committed to providing a reflective jacket, but it was not given to participants who successfully completed the challenge. He has given the excuse by saying you have provided T-shirts to participants, we already have the same T-shirt that we got at the event from Max and Fortis Hospitals. (Distributed free of cost that time) # Given special treatment to the person who has not completed the challenge by at least 4–5 rides; this was unfair treatment/facilitation. Moreover, more than 50% of the riders to whom you distributed trophies and medals have not completed the challenge; even some team leaders have not completed the challenge. (Those mentioned in the above pics had also not completed the challenge) # Mr. Deepak provided the same level of goodies to riders who completed 2-3 rides, 10 rides, or all 21 rides; This was extremely disappointed. He has given away prizes to people you know well (or who you might work with in the future) rather than to qualified candidates. ALL THE EFFORTS OF ELIGIBLE MEMBERS GONE IN WASTE DUE TO THE ORGANISER
