Fake news claims: News viral since 2016 and viral again in 2020 after the JNU incident, that TATA will not hire from JNU anymore.
Facts Check Verdict: False
News Verification: Similar news of Ratan Tata of not hiring any student from JNU is viral since 2016. The news is viral again in 2020. We did not find any press releases or statements from the Tata group in the present case. However, there is verification from the Tata Group head in 2016. The statement of 2016 by the Tata Group states, “Mr Tata has not issued any such statement.”
The statement in 2016, was based on the JNU union president Kanhaiya Kumar, tukde tukde gang comment, where he and other people were arrested for raising anti-India slogans, during the anniversary celebration of Afzal Guru and Kashmiri separatist Maqbool Bhat.
