Doubts Raised On Safety Issues Over Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s Event

The Delhi Police has raised serious doubts over the ‘World Cultural Festival’, organised by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in New Delhi from March 11-13, after an inspection was carried out by senior officials last week. The report raised serious question about preparation and safety arrangements. The event slated to take place on the west bank of Yamuna floodplain near DND flyover, has been organised to celebrate 35 years of The Art of Living. It is expected to attract around 35 lakh people. It has come under the scanner of National Green Tribunal after a set of petitions were filed demanding its cancellation over concerns of potential permanent damage to the riverbed. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to inaugurate the event on Friday. President Pranab Mukherjee was to attend the valedictory function on Sunday but he pulled out of the event yesterday citing “unavoidable circumstances”.
