Dr Sahala | Screengrab: Mathrubhumi News
Kannur: MLA A N Shamseer's wife Dr Shahala said that she is being hunted down by casting unnecessary allegations on her appointment in Kannur University. The allegations raised against me was to humiliate Shamseer, Shahla told Mathrubhumi News.
"I have the required qualification for the post. The court verdict was given not hearing my side of the story. As wife of a legislator, how can I be avoided for the post intentionally," she asked. This is a personal attack against me and I'm unaware of the reasons, she said.
The post was not created for me. I have applied seeing the advertisement in paper. I have not exerted any influence. I had attended the interview like all other candidates. If appointments are invited for eligible posts, I will attend. I have a right for that, she made it clear.
MLA A N Shamseer had courted a controversy over move to appoint his wife in Kannur university in violation of rules.
