MG University VC appointment; Govt gives new list to Governor, omitting name of Dr Sabu Thomas

mg

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The state government has handed over a new list to the Governor regarding the appointment of Vice Chancellor at MG University. The government handed over the new list by omitting the name of Dr Sabu Thomas who recently stepped down from the post of Vice-Chancellor. Higher Education Minister R Bindu said that the government has also handed over a new list for the appointment of VC at Malayalam University. Although the government had demanded that Dr Sabu Thomas should be reappointed as MG University VC, the Governor opposed this.

"The government has handed over a new list by omitting the name of Sabu Thomas. We are hoping that the appointment will be made soon. The bill passed by the assembly has been sent to the Governor. However, he has not accepted or returned it. Hence uncertainty remains over the bills. The government is helpless in this matter," the minister said.

The earlier list provided by the government was rejected by the governor as it contained the names of a retired VC and relatively junior professors. The governor then directed the higher education department to submit a new list of names consisting of three senior professors for the appointment of Vice-Chancellor.

The VC's absence has had a negative impact on the operation of MG University. The issuance of degree certificates has come to a halt. Since no one is in charge, the varsity's administration is in crisis.
