Lahore: The appointment of vice chancellors of four public universities, pending for the last couple of months, is expected to be made in a couple of days as the Punjab law minister and the Higher Education secretary called on Governor Latif Khosa on Wednesday and discussed the issue, sources said.
The chief minister re-sent summaries for the appointment of vice chancellors and it was binding on the governor to sign the summaries in 10 days, which were completing on Thursday (today).
Law Minister Rana Sanaullah and Higher Education Secretary Haseeb Athar briefed Mr Khosa about the universities as well as the candidates.
The law minister reportedly assured the governor that the Punjab government wanted to move ahead with consensus on the issue of appointment of the vice-chancellors.
Upon Governor's insistence, sources said, the law minister said the Punjab government would not make a political issue out of appointment of vice chancellors at University of Sargodha and Bahauddin Zakariya University. The law minister said that the government would hold an inquiry against Prof Dr Zafarullah, the former BZU vice chancellor. Dawn
