T'PURAM: With science and technology principal secretary A E Muthunayagam submitting his resignation, the fate of the proposed IIT in the state hangs in the balance. Muthunayagam, as the governing board chairman of the Chennai IIT, had taken the initiative to start the IIT subcentre in the state.I don't know what will happen to the IIT. But if the Government of India wants the Chennai IIT to launch a subcentre in Kerala, I shall do whatever is necessary, said Muthunayagam after submitting his resignation.The IIT, which was to have come up at the jersey farm in Vithura, later became a victim of the group fight within the CPM.
