Gopinath Ravindran reappointed as Kannur University VC
Official sources said the reappointment of Ravindran at the top of the university will be with effect from November 24.
Ragesh, a former Rajya Sabha MP, is the private secretary to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.
Sources said the Governor has sought a report from the Vice Chancellor on the allegations over Ragesh's wife's inclusion in the shortlisted candidates.
SUCC also protested against the reappointment of Ravindran, claiming that as per norms of the University, a person more than 60 years of age shall not be appointed as Vice Chancellor.
