Thiruvananthapuram: The ruling Left Democratic Party (LDF) in Kerala has announced a protest march against the state’s Governor Arif Mohammad Khan on November 15.
The party has alleged that the governor is trying to destroy the self-government in the university by using his powers as the vice-chancellor.
This comes after the governor rejected the appointment of 15 senate members of Kerala University, leading to a rift between the state government and Khan.
CPI(M) state secretary MV Govindan and CPI state secretary Kanam Rajendran jointly informed about the march, making serious allegations against the governor.
MV Govindan alleged that the forces of the Sangh Parivar were trying to malign the secular higher education in the state universities by the acts of the Governor.
