The event has already created a massive controversy over cancelling Gujarat Narendra Modi's keynote address via video-conferencing. Quite a few speakers and even a couple of sponsors pulled out from the event after the invitation to Modi was withdrawn on Monday.
The student organisers of the meet, forced to cancel Modi's address owing to pressure from crucial stakeholders, have reportedly been offered help by the Congress. The management, a few professors and an anti-Modi lobby of the alumni were instrumental behind the move.
Activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal has also been invited by Wharton though the organizers said the former was not a replacement for the Gujarat CM.
Rahul Gandhi had been invited to speak at the forum in the past as well.
