Mysuru:  An open debate will be held between former MLC and senior BJP leader G. Madhusudhan and former Vice-Chancellor Prof. K.S. Rangappa regarding the alleged irregularities committed by Rangappa when he was the VC of Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) and University of Mysore (UoM).

The debate will be held on Tuesday, July 3, at Pathrakarthara Bhavan and Mysuru District Journalists Association (MDJA) will facilitate the debate.

At a press conference recently, Madhusudhan had charged Rangappa of destroying the future of nearly 10 lakh students of KSOU and that he was involved in a number of scams both in KSOU and UoM.
