MERIT GOES FOR A TOSS

Hindustan Times (Bathinda) - - Region -

As Pun­jab tech­ni­cal educa­tion min­is­ter Cha­ran­jit Singh Channi de­cided the post­ing of two lec­tur­ers want­ing to be trans­ferred to a place of their choice by toss­ing a coin, he dis­re­garded merit. It shows that we are still a dogma-driven so­ci­ety with mis­placed be­liefs and per­cep­tions. The hi­lar­i­ous act by this min­is­ter is tan­ta­mount to mock­ery of the educa­tion sys­tem. The act might have gone un­no­ticed had it not been caught on cam­era as the video went vi­ral. Those stake­hold­ers in the educa­tion sys­tem should take it se­ri­ously. Ramesh K Dhi­man,
