  1. Dear editor,
    It was misunderstood through your vague statement that L&T has not given salary for workmen for February and March months and also deducted lockdown period amount, it was a false claim – L&T, who have given timely salary of all workmen including lockdown days.

    Please edit and correct the article as it shows a negative image on those who followed central government rules & guidelines
