The employees included executives staged a day-long sit-in- in front of the main gate bringing the functioning of the head office to a standstill. They waved banners and placards and raised slogans to press for saving DCI.
DCI non-Executive Employees’ Union honorary president V.S.Padmanabha Raju said the employees took mass casual leave on Tuesday and decided to intensify their strike if the NDA Government did not withdraw its decision. He said that they would go on strike from December 16 if the decision was not shelved.
