Boss gives only Re 1 salary hike and then asks teams to perform like Harish Salve

19, May 2017 By Guest Patrakar

New Delhi: Yesterday the International Court of Justice stayed the execution order of a Pakistani military court in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case. While every Indian is rejoicing over the news, there’s someone who believes India has set a wrong example by doing this.

Varun Kumar, an employee of TCS, yesterday tweeted something that lead to outrage on social media. Though outrage is quite common these days, but the outburst  on Varun Kumar’s tweet was so impactful that Varun started trending above Kulbhushan Jadhav and other hashtags. Varun in a series of tweets wrote, “Glad to know that the ICJ has stayed the execution order of Kulbhushan Jadhav, but India has set a very very wrong example.”

Due to the character limit of 140, Varun couldn’t tweet what he actually meant to say and people on Twitter started trolling and criticizing him. A few people even threatened him with death. 

In the second tweet of the series, Varun tried to clarify his stand but it was too late now.

“Harish Salve taking just one rupee for the case isn’t something appreciable. It will encourage management not to give hike to their employees,” he stated.

Faking News reporter spoke to Varun on the incident. Varun said, “I am disappointed to know that I have been taken in a completely wrong way. I had my appraisal interview today and I was quite confident of getting a good hike. The discussion went well but in the end I was told that I won’t be getting any hike this year. When I told my boss about all the work I had done that fiscal year he defended by saying is it bigger than what Harish Salve has done? I had no answer. He further added that if Mr. Salve can do it for just one rupee why can’t I?”

Harish Salve is the same lawyer who is defending Salman Khan in the hit-n-run case, where allegedly he has taken crores. TCS using one particular example in their favor, clearly illustrates Varun’s intent. Let us see which other companies follow suit.
