Kollam: SNDP General Secretary Vellappally Natesan lashed out at the government in the appointment of Vice Chancellor to the Sree Narayana Guru Open University.
He said that with the appointment of and NRI as VC on the insistence of Minister K T Jaleel, the government has hurt the ‘Sreenarayaneeya’ community. He said that Jaleel was obstinate in appointing the Malabar-based NRI as the VC of the University.
Natesan said that the government turned the inauguration function of the University into a political and not a single SNDP authority were invited for the function.
“The government has repeated the practice of ousting the backward section of people this time too. The appointments of the University head have tarnished the image of the Left government,” Natesan claimed.
