University authorities were in constant touch with district authorities and holding regular talks with protesting students to "chalk out a roadmap for complete normalcy", he said.

When asked to comment on the AMU row's impact on Karnataka elections, he said, "Indian Muslims, in general, are patriot". The police said two youths were arrested later. Terming the AMU Students Union as Pakistani agent, they demanded NSA against the people involved in putting Jinnah's portrait in AMU.
