KANNUR: The Kerala Private College Teachers' Association (KPCTA) Kannur university regional committee has demanded dissolution of the university Syndicate for what it calls violation of university rules and the order of the Chancellor and Governor in the appointment of the Registrar.
A release issued by the KPCTA said the committee had sent a representation to Governor R.S. Gavai and Education Minister P.K. Abdu Rabb demanding that a detailed probe be ordered into the appointment of the Registrar and that the Syndicate be disbanded for its alleged disregard for the Chancellor's order, court judgment, and university statutes.
The release said the university rules clearly stated that the applicant for the post of Registrar should have administrative experience in colleges or universities for five years. The release said the new Registrar did not have the stipulated administrative experience.
It said that as per information accessed by invoking the Right to Information Act, A. Ashokan, who became Registrar, had been elevated to the head of the Economics Department of Nehru Arts and Science College at Taliparamba on April 1, 2001.
The information revealed that Dr. Ashokan had not served in administrative position over teachers or staff of the college during service as teacher at the college, the release said adding that the Syndicate had misused its powers.
The association would resort to agitation if the demands were not met.
The regional committee of the association met here on June 19. Regional president K.P. Muhammadali presided.
Office-bearers Balachandran Keezhoth, A. Ramesh Babu, Fed Mathew, and P. Musafir Ahmad were among those present at the meeting.
