Governor Arif Mohammed Khan has sent back the ordinance seeking his removal as the chancellor of universities in the state. He returned the ordinance without his signature to the government.
The development comes at a time when a few days are left for the special Assembly Session scheduled for December 5.
Legal experts had pointed out that Khan is unlikely to sign the ordinance that curtails his power as chancellor.
Khan on the other day asserted that the appointment of the governor as chancellor was not a favour of the state government, but a national consensus. Snatching the chancellor’s power from the governor is beyond the power of state government, added the governor.
