His acts on the first day of appointment seems highly biased and not good for the institution which already has a poor reputation May Allah Almighty save Pakistan from shenanigans of people bent upon using institutions for personal interests

Lets see if this person "will file references on the whim of some people". Keep in mind he has been at it for the last two decades.
