The district administration on Tuesday suspended the chief medical officer after reports surfaced that 32 cataract patients were operated upon in torch light for want of steady electricity supply at a State-run facility here.“Taking a serious note of the matter, the Uttar Pradesh government acted promptly and suspended CMO Rajendra Prasad,” Health Minister Sidharth Nath Singh told PTI.He said in-charge of the community health centre (CHC) at Nawabganj has also been removed. A report has been sought by the State health department regarding the entire episode.According to the visuals that went viral on social media, 32 cataract operations were done at the CHC in Nawabganj on Monday in torch light as there was no electricity or power back-up there. The CMO earlier said the Acting District Magistrate has ordered a probe into the matter and the organisation entrusted with the task could be blacklisted, if found guilty.Meanwhile, some relatives of the patients complained that they were not provided with any beds after the procedure, and that they were made to lie down on floors despite extreme cold weather conditions.Uttar Pradesh has attracted bad press for a series of ‘medical disasters’ in the recent past, with the death of more than 60 children, mostly infants, at a government hospital in Gorakhpur being the latest case in point.A hospital in Farukhabad recorded 49 deaths — 30 in neo-natal ICU and 19 during delivery — between July 20 and August 21 this year, reportedly due to a lack of oxygen supply.

New Delhi: Facing a leadership crisis after Rahul Gandhi quit as Congress president, top party leaders went into a huddle Thursday to discuss the way forward, but there was no decision when the Congress Working Committee would meet to decide on his successor. Senior leaders Motilal Vora, Ahmed Patel, Ghulam Nabi Azad and Anand Sharma met at the office of the Leader of Opposition at the Parliament complex and deliberated on the future course of action, sources said. The next step would be to convene a meeting of the Congress Working committee (CWC), the highest decision-making body of the party, and it might happen as early as next week, but there is no official confirmation, they said.Senior Congress leader Sonia Gandhi is set to travel abroad in the next few days for medical check-up and she is likely to be accompanied by her son Rahul Gandhi.His sister and Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is already abroad and is unlikely to return soon. With the Gandhis abroad, a meeting of the CWC could be held without their presence but any decision on the next Congress chief would not be taken without their consent.Rahul Gandhi attended a Mumbai court hearing in a defamation case Thursday and is likely to attend another similar hearing in a Patna court on Saturday. The various options before the CWC would be to either have an interim Congress president till the time a regular appointment is made through election, nominate a new Congress chief or form a presidium that could run the party till the time regular election to the top post is made.Probable candidates for the post of Congress president include Motilal Vora, Mallikarjun Kharge, Ashok Gehlot and Mukul Wasnik.Gandhi, in his open letter on Wednesday, said he had asked the CWC to entrust the task of finding the new Congress president to a group of people. “Immediately after resigning, I suggested to my colleagues in the Congress Working Committee that the way forward would be to entrust a group of people with the task of beginning the search for a new President. I have empowered them to do so and committed my full support to this process and a smooth transition,” Gandhi said in his letter.Rahul Gandhi has already said that any such decision would be have his approval but he would not like to get into the selection process.

Tailgating won’t get you through that intersection any faster David Santiago Garcia/Aurora Photos You’ve stopped barely a hair’s breadth away from the car in front of you at a traffic light, hoping to get through quickly when the light changes. But you won’t. Instead, a new study suggests you’ll take just as long as an auto stopped up to two car lengths behind the lead driver. To find out whether tailgating pays off, researchers lined up 10 sedans at a traffic intersection on a test road, such that they stood different distances apart each time. A drone hovering above the intersection recorded the cars moving as the light turned green. Just as it takes time to heat a solid ice cube before it starts melting—a thermodynamic concept called latent heat—there’s a time lag before you can safely accelerate your car in a solid jam, offsetting any advantage of closeness, researchers reported last week in the New Journal of Physics. A car standing up to 7.6 meters back speeds up and covers the extra distance in about the same time it takes the tailgating car, with both crossing the intersection at the same time. That suggests your driver’s education teacher was right all along: Maintaining a safe distance at traffic lights won’t slow you down, and it has the added benefit of reducing your chances of rear-end collisions. But think again if you’re waiting in a line full of people. Because pedestrians are slower, the time delay becomes insignificant, making a closer-packed line move quicker.
