KOCHI: Governor P Sadasivam said that on daily basis his office gets a minimum of 25-30 petitions pertaining to universities about their colleges, faculty members, syndicate, Vice Chancellors and the students as well. He was speaking after inaugurating the Bhavan’s College of Arts & Commerce at Kakkanad here the other day.
“One third of the petitions coming to the Rajbhavan about the universities have not been submitted in a proper way. Most of the petitions lack the basic things such as who sent the letter and from where it has come. If the petitioner sends the application with proper signature, address and contact details action can be taken on the same day itself,” Sadasivam said.
He further said that the complainant should be ready to reveal his/her identity.
“If the complaint doesn’t have proper details there is no need to act upon it. As we have to take the version of the accused officials so the whereabouts of the petitioner is essential. I assure the state that the grievances will be resolved within a short period of time,” he added.
He also added that the petitions should be handed over to the state government if the decision has to be come from them. A request from the Governor’s office will be also enclosed with the petition for the speedy action, he said.
He also agreed to distribute `5 crore to the best universities in Kerala by December. Minister for Fisheries, Ports & Excise K Babu presided over the function.
