In MIMS too?

With the resignation of Medical Education Minister Ramachandregowda, it is suspected that allegations regarding recruitment in Mandya Institute of Medical Sciences (MIMS), might be closed down.

Had the State government acted swiftly soon after allegations about gross irregularities in recruitment, whatever omissions and commissions committed by the guilty persons would have come to the fore. Despite submitting memoranda to the chief minister’s office and subsequent directions to the department of Medical Education from the CM’s office way back in April, the probe is yet to begin.

District  Oppressed Communities Federation president Puttankaiah said since Ramachandregowda was the District-In-Charge minister, the probe was put on the backburner. The government did not give permission to hold an inquiry. With the minister’s resignation, there is a general feeling that the issue may be closed.

They also flayed the MIMS administration for not following reservation policy in recruitment and for misguiding the district officials of Social Welfare Department by not providing necessary information.

The official Dr H S Shivaram said that it has come to notice that there were irregularities in the appointment and alleged that MIMS Director Pushpa Sarkar was not cooperating in the inquiry. Because of hostile attitude, they have recommended to the higher authorities to appoint a state-level inquiry committee.

The has been gross irregularities in the appointment of nurses and promotion of aspirants belonging to scheduled castes and tribe. The MIMS, which is one of the prides of the district, has been creating ripples with the allegations of irregularities in the appointment of staff and also against the director Dr Pushpa Sarkar.

There is also disappointment on the MP and JD(S) leader, who have been declaring that they have played a major role in the setting up of the institute have not shown interest over the issue till now.

A protest will be held shortly to grab attention seeking justice to the SC/ST candidates in the issue, added Puttankaiah.
