Thiruvananthapuram: Governor Arif Mohammad Khan once again lashed out against the Chief Minister, expressing his frustration with the lack of responses to his inquiries. The Governor told the media that it was the Chief Minister who initially requested him to continue serving as the chancellor of the universities. However, he now finds it perplexing that the same Chief Minister is unwilling to address his concerns and queries, particularly those related to various bills. Notably, even the ministers delegated by the Chief Minister have been unable to provide satisfactory responses to his questions. In light of this, Governor wondered who else he should turn to for answers.
The governor also defended the Kalamandalam Chancellor’s request for a salary, asserting that there is no obligation for individuals to provide their services for free. He expressed his support for the demand, emphasizing that the ongoing crisis could have been averted had he remained in the role of Kalamandalam Chancellor, as chancellors are not required to personally cover salaries when they hold this position. This differs from the situation when an external individual is appointed to the position.
