Kochi | The Kerala High Court on Wednesday ordered issue of notice to former chief minister V S Achuthanandan on a PIL challenging his appointment as chairman of Kerala Administrative Reforms Commission.

The order was issued by a division bench of justices Thottthil B Radhakrishnan and Devan Ramachandran while hearing the petition filed by Arun Thomas against the appointment of Achuthanandan as the chairman.

In his petition, Thomas questioned the government’s decision on the appointment contending that it was done without prescribing the qualification and inviting applications from eligible candidates.
