The event which will be held in four days (July 22-25) is very total in implementing the rules. "I do not want any unwanted bad thing to be happened as before, I will enforce strict sanctions," Haris said while giving a speech. The committee has formed a Discipline Committee (Komdis) and Appeals Committee (Komding) to deal with the matter.
