Kanhaiya Kumar to meet FTII Pune students

Pune: After his visit to Nagpur, JNU Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar will next week meet the students of FTII here who had protested against Gajendra Chauhan’s appointment as the chairman of the institute.

“In a day-long visit to the city (Pune), Kanhaiya will visit FTII and meet the students who were protesting against the appointment of FTII society chairman and other members,” Pankaj Chavan, a convener of All India Students Federation (AISF) said here today.

Chavan said Kumar will also attend an AISF rally here during his visit on April 24. “We appeal to the police to give adequate security and make sure Nagpur-like incident (wherein a footwear was hurled at Kumar) is not replicated here,” Chavan said. Kumar is out on bail after his arrest on sedition charges by the Delhi police.
