New Delhi: Everyday new instances of sexual harassment are coming to the open, with one skeleton or the other tumbling from the bigwigs’ closets in response to the #MeToo movement.
The row which had first struck Bollywood has now spread like a virus to the rest of the industries as well. After exposes in showbiz, comes the turn of the corporate sector.
The current allegation of sexual harassment is heard from Tata Motors.
The Corporate Communication Chief Suresh Rangarajan has now entered the list of accused under the #MeToo radar.
It is reported that an anonymous female employee of the firm had accused Rangarajan of sexually harassing her. This issue was taken up by a journalist named Sandhya Menon who had tweeted about the same.
Responding to this Twitter upload, the TATA Group had released a statement within a couple of hours. It had said, “We have always strived to ensure a respectful and safe workplace for every employee of ours. Allegations of any sort are taken into consideration and later investigated. An immediate action is taken.”
Adding to the statement, they said that the matter was already taken up by their Internal Complaints Committee.
The company has gone further saying, “Any such behaviour is against the Tata’s code of conduct. Such actions will be subjected to appropriate action, once the enquiry is done.”
This instance has come to the limelight parallel to the earlier allegations over film stars, journalists and personalities from the entertainment industry.
