Bangalore University Vice-Chancellor N. Prabhu Dev kept the antagonism between him and arch rival Registrar (Administration) B.C. Mylarappa alive even while on the last leg of his tenure.

“The Registrar is virtually dismantling all our work. The Bangalore School of Economics was sabotaged; the School of Communication was not even allowed to take off. The [undergraduate] exams have been postponed by three weeks and the reason given is the bandh. Is that the reason?” Dr. Prabhu Dev said.

There is so much atmosphere of hatred, he added.
