GMC issue

This refers to news regarding GMC de-recognition threat in Greater Kashmir. I wonder why the shortage of faculty in various departments of GMC is suddenly being highlighted when the problem has been there for quite a long time now. Or is it that a handful of people are about to retire in a few months and hence have started beating the drums about the enhancement in retirement age. I fail to understand that for whom they are asking the extension when no professors and even no associate professors exist in the mentioned departments who are facing the threat of de-recognition. May I ask what has been done so far for upgrading the faculty of various departments in spite of availability a good number of eligible and most suitable candidates for the faculty posts? Why the doctors working in different departments who are since long eligible for faculty posts, not been adjusted to solve the crisis. The only solution coming from the senior faculty seems to be enhancement in their retirement age for which one or the other reason is being cited. It is the most selfish and the self centered attitude of the persons at the helm of affairs and an equal absolute negligence by government which has been responsible for the ever deteriorating condition of GMC and its associated hospitals. It is very unfortunate that these people can never look beyond their own interests. I request the senior faculty members that Instead of pleading for the enhancement in their retirement age, please prepare yourselves to retire gracefully and look beyond your self interests and recommend the steps for securing not only the present but most importantly the future of our own prestigious GMC so that it may regain its lost glory.
