Governor suffers setback in high court; Kerala University cancels nomination to Senate

governor

KOCHI: The Kerala High Court Tuesday cancelled the nomination of Governor Arif Mohammad Khan to the Kerala University Senate. The court directed the vice-chancellor to make a fresh nomination within six weeks. Along with this, the court upheld the appointment of two persons nominated by the government. The governor argued that he can nominate members to the Senate on his own. However, the governor has suffered a setback with the high court canceling the nomination.

There was a huge protest against Governor Arif Mohammad Khan's action of including the names of new people to the Senate of Kerala University. Allegations were raised that the governor included people owing allegiance to BJP as nominees. The governor included his own people after correcting the list directed by the university among the 17 members of the senate.


Of the 17 people, ABVP and BJP supporters and leaders of pro-BJP teachers' organizations were included. BJP mouthpiece Janmabhoomi’s special correspondent is also in the Senate as the Governor's nominee.
