Thiruvananthapuram: Continuing his criticism on the opposition, Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan on Friday said that the difference of opinion existing in Congress is the reason behind the allegations levelled against him.
The opposition does not know anything about the matter. The state government has not responded to my statements yet. The appointment of Kannur University Vice-Chancellor is not the biggest issue. I took such a strong position as this is related to national institutions, he said.
The recent issue started with Congress veteran Ramesh Chennithala accusing the government and the Governor of having a different opinion on conferring D.Litt to dignitaries including the President of India.
Instead of backing Chennithala, Opposition Leader VD Satheesan said that the Governor shall first remove the Kannur varsity VC from the position. The Governor and Congress leaders have been exchanging allegations for the last one week.
