Today, the country’s top court came down forcefully for spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar stating that,”You have no sense of responsibility. Do you think you have the liberty to say whatever you want?” Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said yesterday that if there will be any damage which is been caused to the environment by the 3 day cultural festival which held on the back of The River Yamuna in Delhi last year. The blame should be given to the Government as they allowed the event.
The 60 year old Sri Sri Ravi Shankar who has lakhs of followers around the world, stated on Facebook that ‘If any fine has to be taken, then it should be taken from the Central and State Governments and NGT itself, as they gave the permission. If Yamuna River is so pure then they should have stopped the World Culture Festival.’
The testification is been done by the experts of the National Green Tribunal that the event which includes a 7-acre stage for musicians and dancers, sprawl across 1,000 acres.
Reversing that will may take 10 years and about 42 crores they said. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar the founder of Art of Living Foundation, have denied all the accusations of damaging the pure Yamuna. Last year Environmentalist asked, the “World Culture Festival” to not allow but National Green Tribunal said it was too late to call the event off. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar should be praised with an award for hosting a spectacular event that drew people from across the countries to the bank of one of the world’s most polluted river Yamuna.
The Prime Minister Narendra Modi opened the event on the stage next to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
