Delhi Police has provided heavy security arrangments to ensure no violent incidents take place during the rally. 

Meanwhile, 20-year-old Gurmehar Kaur, who was caught in the eye of the storm after her controversial message about ABVP and Indo-Pak disputes, has reportedly clarified that she has no intention or ambitions in politics and does not wish to be dragged into the matter anymore.

"I just gave my opinion, and I never expected the whole thing to take such a turn. I had a really bad time. I am not in a state to talk about it, and I cannot take it anymore,” Kaur told a national daily.
