Kannur: Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan demanded the Vice Chancellor of Kannur University to revise the list of teachers recommended to various boards of studies, after eliminating ineligible candidates. The Chancellor directed to exclude the members, who were selected from other departments, instead of the subject experts in a particular board of studies.

VC had formed 72 boards of studies under the Kannur University last year. Following this, KPCTA alleged that the University is attempting to appoint 68 ineligible persons as teachers in several boards of studies. The university has selected unqualified and inexperienced teachers by excluding hundreds of eligible senior teachers, noted KPCTA.

A High Court division bench had ordered to revoke the boards of studies formed by violating the university rules. Later, VC wrote a letter to the chancellor seeking to nominate new members by maintaining the appointed members in the boards.

The academic activities are proceeding for a year in the absence of the boards of studies. Save University campaign committee opined that the governor’s instruction to revise the list will be a backlash for VC, following the High Court order.
