Posters with title BHU VC Hindi Virodhi (anti-Hindi BHU VC) and carrying his caricature have been put up at various locations, including Maldahiya in Varanasi. Who has put up the posters is not known.

The poster reads, BHU VC Prof Rakesh Bhatnagar ji, why there is step-motherly treatment with the Hindi speaking students, why Hindi-speaking aspirants were insulted during the interview for the post of assistant professor, then why there is a need of Rajbhasha cell in the university, why there is a violation of constitutional values and suppression of moral rights, why there are irregularities in the appointment process, why so special blessings to (the candidates) from a particular university (JNU) in appointments, and why so much discrimination with Hindi speaking students studied in BHU.

BHU public relation officer Dr Rajesh Singh rejected all the allegations calling them baseless. “All allegations are baseless. All rules and regulations have been followed during the interview for the post of assistant professors,” Dr Singh said, adding that transparent process has been followed in the interview and appointment. There has been no discrimination with anyone. All allegations are baseless.
