    It is travesty of justice that first one of the junior professor was given the charge of medical superintendent over 16 other senior professor as a case of gross favouritism. The intention of those responsible was to elevate him to a position to make him a strong contender for the post of Director Principal. It is not only this aspect but administration of hospital is also in bad shape.
