The college administration invited Verma for the event last week, when he was reinstated to the top post by Supreme Court.

He had agreed to attend the event and is likely to speak on what it takes to 'build organizational identity through personal history'.

Other influential personalities who could attend this year's event are, Union Ministers Suresh Prabhu, Smriti Irani, and AAP's Manish Sisodia.

"There are 24 to 25 sessions in each event spread over three days (from Feb 14-16). Besides keynote speakers, we have townhall events and panel discussions. The full list of speakers for this year is being worked on," one of the organizers said.
