The decision by IT giant TCS to shift its Lucknow Centre is being seen as a major embarrassment for the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh. CM Adityanath after meeting with delegation of TCS employees had ordered his secretary level officers to pursue the matter.

A senior government official said Adityanath will have a meeting with the TCS’s top executive sometime after August 10. CM recently has announced the new industrial policy offering big discounts to investors to set up units in backward regions.

Speaking to ETV, Deputy Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Dinesh Sharma said, “Efforts are being made to stop TCS leaving from Lucknow. They will have to explain the reasons behind their decision as the government has agreed to give them all the facilities.”
