Kochi: Kerala University on Wednesday told the high court that selection of the senate nominee for the vice-chancellor search committee is not part of the agenda of the meeting scheduled for November 4.

The court was considering the plea of 15 senate members who were removed from the body by the chancellor for not participating in the last meeting which was slated to name its nominee to the committee. Alleging that the members stayed away from the meeting on purpose to ensure quorum was not met, governor sacked them.

The VC search committee is one of the matters of contention between the governor and the government.

Meanwhile, justice Devan Ramachandran asked the counsellor of the university if the institution wishes to get a new head. He said the move would affect the university. The post has been vacant since October 24.
