The writ petition is filed mainly with the following prayers :-
(i) "To issue a writ of mandamus or other appropriate writ, direction or order declaring Exts.P3 and P2 as illegal and unconstitutional. (ii) To issue a writ of mandamus or other appropriate writ, direction or order commanding respondents to take steps to see that the petitioner is serving as Pro-Vice Chancellor of the Kerala Agricultural University till his term expires under Ext.P1. (iii) To issue a writ of mandamus or other appropriate writ, direction or order directing the respondents to pay the remuneration and all other allowances etc. to the petitioner considering that the petitioner had continued in service as per the terms of Ext.P1." Though the learned counsel for the petitioner made vehement submission that the termination itself was politically motivated, in view of the efflux of time of tenure also, as far as the claim for salary and other benefits are concerned, the petitioner has to approach the civil court. Hence the writ petition is disposed of making it clear that in the event of the petitioner approaching the civil court, the time taken for prosecuting this writ petition shall stand excluded in computing the period of limitation.
