THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The state government is unlikely to press for the Professional Colleges Admission Regularisation Bill if the Governor sends it back. The government is of the view that in view of the severe criticism from the apex court, there need not be any further move in this regard.
However, Law Minister A K Balan said the government decision to pass the piece of legislation was technically correct. Meanwhile, the Cabinet meet on Friday did not discuss the issue in detail, said sources. The Chief Minister has already made clear the government is not for confrontation with the court. “The Bill has been cleared by the Law Department and sent. However, the Governor may not issue his assent in the backdrop of the SC verdict,” sources said.
