Order applicable to TN Governor

The ensuing conflict between the governors and the state governments  has reached its climax in the states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and West Bengal. Therefore, in the matter of the appointment of the Vice-Chancellors, the state governments have approached the Supreme Court.
The Governor C V Ananda Bose and The Mamata Banerjee government clashedover the appointment of vice-chancellors on ad-hoc basis in six state-run universities in West Bengal without consulting the state government.
Therefore, the West Bengal state government filed a case in the Supreme Court, alleging that the governor is trying to disrupt the education system of the state.
In dispossing off the petition, the Supreme Court has now directed the Governor of West Bengal to appoint qualified persons from the list provided by the State Government as University Vice-Chancellors. 
Also, the Supreme Court has directed the West Bengal government to send the list of names to the Governor for the vacant posts of Vice-Chancellors.
In Tamil Nadu too, Governor R N Ravi is at logger heads with the state government on the appointment of vice-chancellors. 
RN Ravi has been reportedly viewed as taking arbitrary decisions on the activities of the universities and acting without consulting the state government.
The conflict regarding the appointment of Vice-Chancellor continues till date. Does not the order issued by the Supreme Court in the case brought by the West Bengal Government applicable to Tamil Nadu as well?.
As all state universities are created by the state governments and managed by the state government they have absolute authority over the universities; 
The Supreme Court order in the West Bengal Governemnt’s petition reiterates that governors should not interfere. The conflict between governors and non-BJP-ruled state governments should  come  to an early end!
