Employees are calling it out for firing people without any notice. The fired employees conducted a silent protest at Press Club in Delhi on 3 July demanding fair compensation.
They wrote: “We the employees of @NewsHtn (Tiranga TV) are being fired with just 1 month salary and without any clarity. We would want to meet with @KapilSibal as no one from management has addressed us. @INCIndia @RahulGandhi @PrakashJavdekar @IndEditorsGuild @ShekharGupta @BJP4India”
Tiranga TV senior editor assignment Sushil Kotian said: “People across all the departments and at levels have been fired with just a month’s pay. He mentioned that several fresh graduates, from some prime media colleges like ACJ, who had joined just a month back in May, have also been let go by the channel.”
He added: “Many channels start and then shut down (abruptly) and we journalists are the ones who suffer. The government needs to come up with guidelines so that every Tom, Dick and Harry don’t start a channel without proper vision.”
