Chandigarh, Feb 13: Setting a new trend, Punjab Technical Education Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Monday tossed a coin to decide on a posting in his department. On being asked about this selection procedure, Channi said that he has not done anything wrong.

“There were two claimants for one post and decided to issue order in favour of one on the basis of toss,” Channi was quoted as saying by Babushahi.com. By tossing a coin, the minister had issued posting orders of newly recruited Mechanical Lecturers in the state Technical Education institutions.

According to the reports, there were a total of 37 lecturers selected for the post. The deadlock between two candidates, who wanted to be posted at Bareta, for a single post made the minister toss a coin and decide on the posting.

The minister, according to reports, had called all the new teachers and gave them posting as per their choices.
