A Setback For Pinarayi And His Colleagues, This Is A Victory For The Governor: A blow to the Pinarayi government. The court rejected the state government’s plea seeking a stay on the appointment of the VC by Governor Arif Mohammad Khan at the Technical University. A single bench of the High Court has clarified that there will be no interim order in the matter. In the vacancy of the Vice Chancellor, the charge should be handed over to any other VC or KTU Pro VC, or Higher Education Secretary. However, the government argued that the appointment of Sisa Thomas, Senior Joint Director of the Technical Education Department, was illegal.

However, this was not accepted by the court. The Governor’s counsel told the court that the VC was appointed as per UGC norms. The court then ordered a detailed hearing on the matter on Friday and also made the UGC a party. With this, the state government has received a heavy blow from the court in the KTU VC issue in the fight against the governor. Additional Secretary of the Department of Higher Education C. made the Governor the first opposing party. The petition was filed by Ajayan.

Dr. Sisa Thomas, who came to take charge as the Vice-Chancellor of the Kerala Technical University, was stopped by the SFI. Dr. Sisa entered the university under police protection. Left-wing organizations, including students and employees, staged the protest. Dr. came expecting a protest. Sisa had responded then.

Dr. Pro-left organizations did not allow Sisak to officially take office. Dr. arrived on campus in the morning by car. SISA and the staff stopped Sisa at the gate. Then they entered the campus with the help of the police.

A bench headed by Justice MR Shah observed that as per the UGC rules, a panel is forwarded to the Chancellor to appoint the Vice-Chancellor, but in contrast, only one person’s name was given to the Governor. KTU Vice Chancellor Dr. Former Dean of Kochi University of Science and Technology PS Sreejith approached the court questioning the appointment of MS Rajashree. The petition was filed based on the Supreme Court’s recent judgment that once approved, UGC rules are liable to be implemented. The plea was based on the Supreme Court ruling that once the UGC rules are approved, it is liable to be implemented.

Finally, as the Vice Chancellor of the University of Technology, Dr. The appointment of MS Rajashree was quashed by the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court found that the appointment was not in accordance with the UGC rules. The Raj Bhavan has taken the step of appointing Dr. Sisa Thomas as the new VC after the Supreme Court dismissed former KTU VC Rajsree due to ineligibility. This legal action was upheld by the High Court today.
