The Kerala Legislative Assembly approves bill that would depose the governor as chancellor of the universities.

The University Legislation (Amendment) Bill, which alters laws relating to the governance of State universities and eliminates the Governor as the Chancellor of universities in the State, was approved by the Kerala Legislative Assembly on Tuesday.

Eminent academicians rather than the Governor would be nominated as Chancellors under the recently enacted Bill.

Arif Mohammed Khan, the governor, will now be asked to sign the bill.This occurs in the midst of a protracted, public argument between Governor Khan and the State government.
