Students stir: Law college announces indefinite closure

Thiruvananthapuram: In a bid to avoid any confrontation with students who resolved to intensify their 26-day long stir, the management of Kerala Law Academy Law College here Sundday announced its indefinite closure from Monday.

Reversing the decision to resume classes from tomorrow, the authorities of Kerala Law Academy College said police, citing intelligence inputs, informed them about possible trouble.

“There is intelligence report of trouble and in view of that, the management has decided to close down the institution indefinitely , a spokesperson of the academy said.

The management had earlier decided to resume classes from Monday.

The college is in the eye of a storm over alleged irregularities in providing internal marks and harassment of students by Principal Lekshmi Nair, daughter of Academy Director N Narayanan Nair, a close relative of a former CPI(M) MLA.

The issue also led to fissures in the CPI-M led ruling LDF with key partner CPI openly coming out in support of students agitation.

SFI, students wing of pro-CPI-M, had withdrawn from the stir last week after management agreed to keep away Lekshmi Nair from the post of Principal.

A meeting convened yesterday by State Education Minister C Raveendhranath to end the agitation had failed to break the impasse as students stuck to their main demand of resignation of the Principal Lekshmi Nair and the management maintained that she had been kept away from the post for next five years.

Significantly though the students belonging to ABVP, KSU and AISF, under a joint action council launched the strike, Congress and BJP have now openly joined the agitation.

Though students started the agitation levelling allegations of harassment, nepotism, mismanagement, and misuse of power, another serious issue with regard to the mis-utilisation of about 12 acres of land assigned to the academy surfaced later, prompting the government to order a probe into the matter.
