Minister used as tool, real pressure came from CMO, says governor

IndiaTimes Thursday, 30 November 2023
Kerala governor Arif Mohammed Khan reiterated his stand that the decision to reappoint historian Gopinath Ravindran as Kannur University vice-chancellor was forced upon him by the Chief Minister's Office (CMO), though he had pointed out "illegalities". Khan downplayed the interventions of higher education minister R Bindu, saying that she was used as a tool and the real pressure came from the CMO. He said CM Vijayan had placed the demand (reappointment of Ravindran) before him once and that he had agreed to give due weightage to the CM's request during the course of the selection process.

Lok Sabha Elections: Rahul Gandhi to contest from Wayanad | Know his political career | Oneindia

The upcoming General Election to elect members of the 18th Lok Sabha in India is anticipated to occur in the forthcoming months of April and May. It's poised to witness a fierce battle between the ruling NDA alliance and the newly formed I.N.D.I.A. alliance. Despite the prevailing political scenario, the idea of a significant surge in support for Congress leader Rahul Gandhi might appear implausible to many observers. However, the 2019 Lok Sabha elections presented a different narrative. Despite Congress's diminished presence on the political landscape with only 52 seats (and the United Progressive Alliance securing 91), Rahul Gandhi's strategic decision to contest from Wayanad in the southern state of Kerala emerged as a pivotal factor. #RahulGandhi #Wayanad #LokSabhaElections #KnowYourMP #WayanadMPRahulGandhi #CongressMPRahulGandhi #IndianPolitics #Congress #PoliticalCareer #Leadership #ElectionCampaign #WayanadConstituency #PoliticalJourney #ElectoralStrategy #CongressLeader #RahulInWayanad #PoliticalMilestones #IndianDemocracy #ElectionDecision #CongressParty #VoteForRahul #PoliticalLegacy #CampaignTrail ~HT.99~PR.152~ED.155~
