MFA decides to approach govt; MTA resents move
COMMON SENIORITY OF GMC SGR, JMU FACULTY
Srinagar/Jammu, June 2: The Medical Faculty Association of Government Medical College here on Thursday decided to formally approach the State Government against the move to formulate a common seniority list for the faculty of both the GMCs in Srinagar and Jammu.
In its meeting held here, the Association deliberated on the proposed Government move and its impact on the GMC Srinagar and career prospects of its faculty.
“The Association will come up with details on the losses suffered by the GMC, Srinagar in the past due to common seniority list. We will be presenting factual details to the Government and based on these details we will be explaining our stand on the issue to it. We will fight this issue to the end,” said a senior member of the MFA. The Association is expected to come up with details on “step-motherly treatment meted out to the GMC, Srinagar and its faculty in the past due to common seniority list.”
Meanwhile, the Government’s decision has also evoked resentment from faculty of GMC, Jammu too, with the incumbents alleging that the move had ulterior motives of benefiting some blue eyed persons.
Sources said the decision of the Government would face stiff opposition from the faculty of GMC Jammu as well as there was a general impression that the move was aimed to pave way for some favorites to grab higher positions.
They said the decision had evoked strong resentment among the GMC Jammu faculty members and they have already started holding close door meetings to chalk out the strategy to oppose it.
The Medical Teachers Association Jammu today convened an emergency meeting of its executive body members and decided to convey its dismay to the Government in strongest words.
“The decision of combining the seniority of the faculty of the twin colleges has been taken by the coalition to benefit some influential persons who want to grab higher positions at the cost of the promotion prospects of others,” MTA general secretary, Dr S.K. Bali told Greater Kashmir.
Dr Bali said the combined seniority would not only mar the promotion prospects of the faculty members, but also affect the studies of the medical students when their guides (faculties) transferred from one place to another.
“It is against the set norms and is bound to create chaos. We will oppose the decision at every cost,” he said.
The Government had separated the seniority list of GMC, Jammu and GMC, Srinagar five years back following a landmark cabinet decision, said another senior faculty member preferring not to be named while hinting that the move had come on the behest of ministers who allegedly want to favour some blue eyed persons.
“The principal of GMC Srinagar is retiring in July and some ministers want someone from GMC, Jammu to be on the post,” he alleged.
He also hinted that earlier, an effort was made to remove Dr Rajinder Singh from his post as principal of GMC Jammu to appoint someone else, in his place. However, the plan failed in wake of stiff opposition, he said adding the decision was a fresh move to facilitate the adjustment of favourite ones.
