THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Seeking more clarity, Governor P Sathasivam has returned the ordinance promulgated by the state government to facilitate the continued education of 150 students of Kannur Medical College, Anjarakkandy.

Kannur Medical College and Karuna Medical College, Palakkad – both self-financing institutions - did not enter into any agreement with the government last year and instead admitted students on their own.
The Admission Supervisory Committee, which found lapses in the admission process had annulled the admission of 150 students of Kannur Medical College and 30 students of Karuna Medical College.
However, the admission of most of the students of Karuna Medical College were later okayed by the Supreme Court.  

The government passed the ordinance for the sake of 150 students of Kannur Medical College whose admissions were not given approval.The government’s intention was to enact a piece of legislation to ensure the students of Kannur Medical College find admission in other colleges.
However, the Governor, who had earlier served as Chief Justice of India, returned the ordinance reportedly citing certain legal anomalies.
