The Ernakulam unit of the Kerala Students’ Union (KSU) staged a protest march here on Thursday demanding the resignation of R. Bindu, Minister for Higher Education, following the decision of the Supreme Court to quash the re-appointment of GopinathRavindran as Vice-Chancellor of Kannur University. The protesting activists alleged that the Minister along with Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan had intervened in the matter in violation of norms to ensure Mr. Ravindran’s appointment. The apex court verdict had come as a blow to the LDF government, they said.
