Earlier, the Kerala Assembly passed the University Laws Bill to replace the Governor as the Chancellor of universities in the state and appoint eminent academicians to the top post. These proceedings led to high drama in the assembly and the opposition, United Democratic Front (UDF), boycotted the House over non-acceptance of the bill. "The University Laws (Amendment) Bill is passed," Speaker AN Shamseer said, as stated in a report by PTI.
