PUNE: JNU Students' Union president Kanhaiya Kumar who is scheduled to address an event in the city tomorrow, will be issued a pre-emptive notice in which he will be asked to abstain from making any provocative and inciting statements, city police said today.

"After Kanhaiya Kumar comes to the city, he will be issued a notice under section 144 of CrPC asking him to abstain from making any provocative and inciting statements during his speech so that social harmony will be maintained," Additional Commissioner of Police C Wakade said.

Police also informed that permission to the event titled as "Rohith Act and safeguarding Indian Constitution" scheduled to be held at Balgandharva Rangmandir, has been given and adequate police bandobast will be deployed at the venue.

Preventive notices have been issued to some right-wing organisations which could disrupt the event, he said.

"Approximately 250 police personnel, including senior officers of the ranks of DCP, ACP and Police Inspector, will be deployed to make sure that no untoward incident takes place during the event," said Wakade.

He said Kanhaiya will be given police cover to and from the venue.

Progressive Students Youth Action Committee, which has organised the event, had yesterday said it has changed the venue in view of the preconditions imposed by the police.

The programme, which was earlier scheduled to take place on the premises of Rashtra Seva Dal, was shifted to Balgandharva auditorium, where they got police permission.

Local police station had issued a notice to the organisers asking them to fulfil some conditions, such as conducting a fire and structural audit of the venue which prompted them to shift the venue.
