Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Governor Sh. Arif Mohammed Khan has given the government his consent to convene the seventh session of the 15th Kerala Assembly from December 5.
The Raj Bhavan’s assent has laid the ground for the government to introduce a Bill seeking to remove the Governor as Chancellor of 14 State universities.
Earlier the Cabinet has decided to recommend to Governor Arif Mohammed Khan that the seventh session of the 15th Kerala Legislative Assembly be convened from December 5.
Though the State Cabinet had sent the ordinance seeking to remove the Governor as the Chancellor of all 14 universities in the State to Mr. Khan for his consideration, he is yet to take a decision on it.
Also, the Governor has already hinted that since the ordinance concerns him, he was likely to send it to the President.
With it being more or less evident now that the Governor is unlikely to sign the ordinance seeking to remove him as Chancellor of the universities, the Left Democratic Front government is now attempting an alternative path of achieving the same by presenting it as a Bill before the Assembly.
