The Swiggy story - Not all is well with VC funded company

Those who follow the startup world in India might have read this 'famous' post from Swiggy employees from marketing and sales department:
Do go through it, if you haven't already. From fake app ratings to cheating investors and even the affiliated restaurant owners - the whistleblowers have revealed everything.

What do you think?
This reminds me of the FoodPanda. Same thing had went down with the company. When it comes to Swiggy they managed to grab eyeballs thanks to product placements in AIB videos. What they said at the end is true. Make a start-up, get venture capital funding, succeed and sale. This happens all the time.

Just to keep a balance here is Swiggy’s explanation on this issue: Swiggy's Response: A Note From The CEO - The Munching Bag

Food startups definitely need a stable model and this can be achieved through intense investment Also they should focus on a all inhouse model as per me to achieve stability.
They can start small and build, follow the lean startup methodology and grow.
I would like to quote an example in the same : Currently clocking 12,000 orders a day, Box8 raises Rs 50 cr in Series B funding
Two days back the New Indian Express reported that a Swiggy food delivery man misbehaved with a woman customer in Bangalore. A stray dog that she used to feed came to her rescue.
