Nishtar Medical College Multan is a fine medical institution of southern Punjab. According to reports, the post of the principal has been vacant for quite some time and this attractive post has become a competitive arena for different medical professors working now in Lahore, Faisalabad, Bahawalpur and D.G. Khan Divisions. Recently some of the aspirants came with their gun-toting guards trying to snatch charge of the vacant position, in anticipation of their regular orders of appointment. The government of Punjab is requested to act urgently and appoint an appropriate person with the proper merit to this post to end uncertainty and prevent defamation of this institution.
