Author steps down from MG varsity board of studies

Author K.R. Meera here on Friday announced her decision to step down from the PG Board of Studies in the School of Letters under Mahatma Gandhi University (MGU), Kottayam.

In a message posted on her social media page, the writer said she had already sent a letter indicating the decision to the Vice Chancellor. The post further said she had never been aware of her inclusion on the panel except for a call from the university earlier seeking permission for the same.

Social media ire

A notification issued by MGU Registrar Prakash Kumar B. earlier this month included Ms. Meera’s name as an external expert member on the board of studies of the School of Letters. The appointment apparently drew criticism on social media with a section terming it as a politically motivated move.
