Kochi: Governor Arif Mohammad Khan on Thursday told the High Court that the senate members of the Kerala University have acted against him. He was responding to the notice in the plea challenging removal of 15 members of the senate.

Khan said that he withdrew his pleasure for the senate members to continue in the office as they acted against him who appointed them. However, the High Court pointed out that "withdrawing pleasure" should be as per the law and not according to personal interests.

The governor also stated that none of this could have happened if the senate members nominated a name for the search committee to find the new Vice-Chancellor.
