New Delhi: Oppo India on Wednesday in a statement has announced that the company has fired the employee from China who reportedly tore the Indian national flag and dumped it in a dustbin. This action comes within a day after huge protests were held at Oppo’s Noida sector 63 facility.
“Based on the recent incident and after thorough investigation with the concerned authorities, we have found that a worker discarded the Indian Flag from the table during regular external material check. OPPO India regrets this unfortunate incident and reaffirms that this is an individual’s behavior that in no way represents our company’s position. We have ZERO tolerance for such matters and have taken strict action in terminating the individual and continue working very closely with the authorities on the matter,” said the company.
