In a desperate attempt to retain Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) in Lucknow, employees of the company have decided to meet union home minister Rajnath Singh in Delhi on Saturday.

Former municipal commissioner Diwakar Tripathi, who is representative of Lucknow MP, Rajnath Singh, has been briefing the home minister about the fate of 2,000 employees who are in danger of losing their jobs, if they don’t shift to other centres, as TCS is going to close its operations in Lucknow.

Employees say the TCS management is not open to talks with them and is in no mood to compromise on the decision of shifting all its employees from the city to other places.

The employees say they will meet the home minister to plead their case before him. They hope that Rajnath Singh talks to Tata Group and helps them stay back in Lucknow.

“The home minister is keeping a close watch on the developments in his constituency. He will make all efforts to retain all the jobs in Lucknow. TCS employees have been assured of best efforts by the home minister,” said Diwakar Tripathi.
