Thiruvananthapuram: The political impasse involving Governor Arif Mohammed Khan and the Kerala government appears to be settling down.

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan wrote a letter to Governor Khan, in which he has reportedly asked him to return as Chancellor of universities.

Governor Khan had been staying away from the position alleging improper appointments in key positions to the universities in Kerala at the behest of the LDF government.

The reappointment of Kannur University vice-chancellor Gopinath Ravindran and the Kerala University's refusal to confer a D.Litt on President of India, Ram Nath Kovind despite the Chancellor's proposal had upset Khan.

It is understood that the chief minister's letter claims that his government will not intervene in the functioning of universities.

The Governor had earlier said that CM Vijayan sent him three letters. Governor Khan is yet to confirm if he would return as the chancellor of universities in Kerala.
