Recently, Yadav had been in the news for fighting with investors, resigning in the morning, and taking back the resignation in the evening.

Yadav made the announcement about giving away Rs 150-200 crore of his personal shares to 2,251 employees at the company’s town hall recently.

In his statement, Rahul Yadav said, “I’m just 26 and it’s too early in life to get serious about money, etc.”


Now Yadav has challenged Ola (Bhavish Aggarwal) and Zomato (Deepinder Goyal) founders to give up half their shares to their employees:

To which he received this reply:

Looks like the young CEO is desperate to leave Housing.com and doesn’t really care about the future of his career.

People seem to be genuinely confused about whether to applaud his ‘I don’t give a sh*t’ attitude or be horrified at his lack of concern.
