Kerala Governor protests political interference in appointment of VCs in varsities
They said the Governor wrote the letter as he was upset with the way the affairs of the universities were conducted by the State’s CPI(M)-led government undermining his authority as Chancellor of the top academic institutions.
The Governor is learnt to have expressed displeasure over the recent re-appointment of Prof Gopinath Ravindran as Vice-Chancellor of Kannur University for another four years and the State Assembly passing of an amendment to the University Act, which according to sources, have taken away the power of the Chancellor to appoint the University Appellate Tribunal.
It is learnt that the Governor has also resented the deletion of a clause authorising the Chancellor to consult the High Court in the appointment of the tribunal.
Sources said Khan has also protested the recommendation of only one single name for appointment as Vice-Chancellor of Shankaracharya Sanskrit Univeristy. The State government did not respond on the issue immediately.
