Thiruvananthapuram: CPM is looking for ways to remove Governor Arif Mohammed Khan as Chancellor of Universities in Kerala. On Friday, the CPM secretariat meeting also considered the options for ousting the governor from his office.

Meanwhile, CPI state secretary Kanam Rajendran had earlier stated that he favoured removing the governor from his office in state universities. LDF State Committee meeting to be convened on Saturday will discuss whether to issue an ordinance or introduce a bill in the state assembly.

At the same time, the meeting will also discuss the controversy surrounding the government's decision to raise the retirement age to 60 years in public sector institutions. Even though the state government has frozen its decision, CPM state secretary MV Govindan's remark that "the decision to raise the retirement age was not discussed with the party" turned out to be controversial.
