Mi Fans Chant Anti-Xiaomi Slogans At Mi Max Launch

In a rather embarrassing incident, police had to be called in at Xiaomi’s special Mi Max, MIUI 8 launch event held in New Delhi on Thursday, after an angry group of fans invited by the company started protesting over the lack of sufficient seats at the event.

The event which was scheduled at 11.30 am, was delayed by more an hour. The company had invited approximately 50,000 people at the event held at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium but there were seating arrangements for only 3,000. 

Moreover, there were further protests as the company did not arrange for any freebies for takeaway; something which attracts a large number of people to these events. However, the India head for Xiaomi, Manu Jain intervened and assured each one of the fans a goodie Bag and a t-shirt which will be couriered to them later if they fall short.

Meanwhile, another group of angry individuals were waiting outside in a long queue to enter the venue; however, a significant delay in the registration process angered the fans further. The Delhi police had to be called in to maintain law and order.
