Discuss layoffs with IT companies, PMK tells TN CM

Chennai, May 19 (IANS) PMK founder S. Ramadoss on Friday demanded that Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K. Palaniswami and other ministers concerned meet information technology (IT) companies’ officials in the wake of layoff reports and ensure that no one is retrenched in the state.
