THENHIPALAM:  Calicut University Vice-chancellor M Abdul Salam will not give an official complaint to the Chancellor against the attack on him by a few Syndicate members on Monday. However, the vice chancellor will submit a detailed status report on the developments in the Syndicate meeting, which turned into a physical confrontation.

The vice-chancellor said that he doubted the continuous attacks from the side of a few Syndicate members were a deliberate plan to put pressure on him to quit the post.

He said that he would hold on to the post till the last day of service if there was no move from the government to expel him.

“It was really a disgusting moment for the education sector in the state. Everyone knows the hidden agenda of a few Syndicate members behind their repeated efforts to tarnish me and ridicule me. But I will continue in the post until the last day of service. I will not surrender my post to the continuous and joint attack of a few Syndicate members,” the vice-chancellor said.

The doctors have advised him to take one-week rest to recover from the health issues caused in the tussle.

Vice-chancellor, Pro Vice-chancellor and a Syndicate member, P M Salahudheen, were injured in the attack during the  Syndicate meeting.
