Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan, citing the ‘irregularities’ in the appointment of vice chancellors in the universities, said it is his duty to ensure that the land law is adhered to. Speaking to media people, Khan said: “I have said over and over that I am not looking for personal justification. There is no personal quarrel with anyone. It is my job to ensure that the laws of the land are followed. It is my job to ensure that the universities are free from executive interference. It is my duty to ensure that appointments based on favoritism and nepotism are not allowed. As long as I’m here, I won’t allow that. Only people who are qualified and meet all the requirements of the UGC will be appointed.” “The leadership will have to take moral responsibility. If someone who is in CM’s office directs VC to appoint his relatives and if CM knows nothing about it, it shows how incompetent he is. If he knows about it, he is equally guilty, he added.
