By 14th February 2018 0 Comments

In a bizarre move, a Punjab minister took to flipping a coin, purportedly to decide on the right candidate, out of two nominees, for the post of a lecturer in a polytechnic institute. The incident was caught on cameras and aired by television news channels. However, a spokesperson of the Congress government in the state claimed that the minister’s intention was to allot the posts in a “transparent” manner and blamed the media for creating an unnecessary controversy.Two lecturers — one from Nabha and another from Patiala — wanted to be posted to a government polytechnic institute at Patiala.

“The minister had asked them to solve the matter mutually, but they insisted that he should take a decision. The minister then asked them about flipping a coin, to which both agreed.” The spokesman also claimed that the minister’s intention was to allot the postings in a “transparent” manner.
