Boss is always right, agree PCL staff

SUBORDINATE STAFF are always in the habit of praising their boss, describing him as the best ever officer they have got so far. The other day, a personal staff to the UPPCL chairman said that work which the present chairman and the managing director had done in a few months, was not done during the last 10 years. ?Yes, he is right,? commented an official on hearing the praise.

SUBORDINATE STAFF are always in the habit of praising their boss, describing him as the best ever officer they have got so far.

The other day, a personal staff to the UPPCL chairman said that work which the present chairman and the managing director  had done in a few months, was not done during the last 10 years. “Yes, he is right,” commented an official on hearing the praise.

“The Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation  Ltd might be passing through a critical financial crisis, but its management is leaving no stone unturned in giving a corporate look to the seventh floor offices at Shakti Bhawan,” he said.

“They have laid new carpets, provided marble flooring and put up costly plasma television sets in some of the chambers.  Really, this much work was never done during the last 10 years,” he said sarcastically.

Jumping signals
SINCE OVER a fortnight, traffic cops have been on the job controlling traffic with the help of signals at important crossings.

Thus, the city is in for a change from being plagued by unruly traffic to getting organised, though there’s still a long way to go. But, it’s disappointing to note that some commuters are refusing to heed to the instructions of the cops and continuing to jump signals. One needs to realise that cops have been doing their bit in this direction, and it’s now the duty of the citizens to adhere to the traffic rules and help them streamline the traffic.

No monsoon
WHERE IS the monsoon? This is a question everyone is asking these days. 

Disappointment is writ large on many a face. After all, heavy rainfall lashed the city early  this month, even before it was time for pre-monsoon showers.  It raised hopes of abundant precipitation in the days ahead. But, soon, the schools of cloud drifted away, leaving the citizens to sweat under the blazing sun.

Prestige issue
THE HOSPITAL board meeting has become a prestige issue at KGMU. While the V-C is adamant to hold it in the name of patient welfare, the superintendent office says the meet could not be held since there were four members less in the quorum.

To raise the number KGMU administration has proposed two names for the board and even informed the chancellor office.

The hospital board meeting has not been held for the last four years and if any other lacuna is raised by the superintendent office, the meeting may get delayed further. Moreso, since the search for a new V-C is on, Prof SK Agrawal may not be able to hold this meeting.
