Kerala University Appointments Canceled
On Thursday in a shocker to the previous left government, the Kerala Lokayukta asked the Kerala University to cancel all the appointments made to the assistant grade posts in 2008 as the process then was not transparent.

G.Sashidharan who is the justice of Upa Lojayukta on issuing the directive said that action should be taken against the then vice chancellor M.K.Ramachandran Nair, pro vice chancellor V.Jayaprakash and four of the University Syndicate members.

During the Left government led by V.S Achuthanandan of the Communist Party of India-Marxist, the Congress has raised this issue as a major corruption case and had on numerous occasions disrupted the proceedings of the state assembly.

The case was unearthed by Sujith S. Kurup, the then Kerala University Senate member and congress students leader, who filed a case with the upa Lokayukta that large-scale corruption took place in the university appointing friends and relatives of left supporters.

Even though the selection test for appointments was conducted during the Congress-led government's tenure in 2006, the list of those who had passed the examination was prepared during the Achuthanandan government's time and appointments were made.

At that time, 160 candidates were posted and the Congress opposition alleged that 60 of them were close to the Left political leaders.

Somehow after a long time discussion the committee also concluded that the appointment were not made in a transparent manner. The court then asked the Lokayukta to go into the case once again. However then the vice chancellor Mr.Nair said that he was certain that the list and the appointments were done in a clean way.
