  • Not to clash with its own government

Thiruvananthapuram: Governor Arif Mohammad Khan has rejected the Chief Minister’s explanation in the controversy over the appointment of the Vice Chancellor of the university. There is no discussion with the Chief Minister through the media. It says to follow the rules and regulations. He also made it clear that he had not taken a political stand as governor.

There is no change in the position of the Chancellor. There was a lot of pressure for the re-appointment of Kannur VC. The appointment was signed to avoid a confrontation. The letter was sent to the Chief Minister as he could not speak directly. The letter has everything. The governor said he would not clash with his own government.

Governor not asked to do anything against conscience: CM
The VC was appointed to avoid resident allegations. He did not seek AG’s legal advice. He also rejected the Chief Minister’s claim that only one name was accepted at Kalady University. If only one name was accepted, then he asked why the name was returned.

The government does not allow them to perform their legal duties. Once yielded to pressure, no longer give up. That is why the chancellor is stepping down, he said.

At the same time, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that the government has never asked the Chancellor to do anything against his conscience. Informing the Chancellor of the Government’s views is a natural communication at the administrative level. It is up to the Hon’ble Chancellor to consider them and make the appropriate decision. The governor has that freedom, though. The CM also said that the government was not responsible for not taking decisions for fear of criticism from any angle.
