An odd formula

Srinagar: In an effort to resolve the controversy over two principals of Government Medical College (GMC) Srinagar, the state government today invoked odd-even formula to end the crisis.

“As you know we have got two principals – Dr Rafeeq Pampori and Dr Kaiser Ahmad for GMC, which is good and actually aimed at giving more power to the college,” Chief Minister Mufti Muhammad Sayeed said at a press Conference in banquet hall Srinagar. “To streamline their functioning, we have invoked odd-even formula so that one will work on odd days of the month and the other on even.”

Sayeed was flanked by Health Minister Lal Singh and Chief Secretary B R Sharma.

“A toss between the two would further decide who will get the odd or even days,” Sayeed said. “And the toss (the highly transparent exercise available in this case) will be carried out as soon as possible right inside the premises of GMC under the supervision of Chief Secretary in presence of both Dr Pampori and Dr Kaiser .”

Sources said Lal Singh, influenced by his priests, had asked for odd days for his appointed principal Dr Kaiser, a demand that was strongly opposed by Dr Pampori.

GMC was left with two principals at the helm after Dr Pampori resigned and the government appointed Dr Kaiser but also asked Dr Pampori to return.

“In principle, both are the principals,” Sayeed said while looking  towards the health minister for approval. “One is in principle the principal, and the other is the principal in principle. So in principle, we decided to keep both.”

Sharma at the end of press conference while reading from a paper said the toss would be carried out on Monday and government had made all preparations in this regard.
