NATIONAL GREEN TRIBUNAL CAME DOWN HEAVILY ON SPIRITUAL GURU SRI SRI RAVI SHANKAR STATING “YOU HAVE NO SENSE OF RESPONSIBILITY” :

The country’s top environment court — the National Green Tribunal —  came down heavily on spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, stating, “You have no sense of responsibility. Do you think you have the liberty to say whatever you want?”  The comments came after Sri Sri, the spiritual head of the Art of Living Foundation, said in a Facebook post that if any damage has been caused to the environment by the huge three-day cultural festival he held on the banks of the River Yamuna in Delhi last year, it is the government and the court who should take the blame, because they allowed the event.  “If, at all, any fine has to be levied, it should be levied on the Central and state governments and the NGT itself, for giving the permission. If the Yamuna was so fragile and pure, they should have stopped the World Culture Festival,” Sri Sri said.   The NGT has now directed AOL and other parties to file a reply and objections to the expert panel report on the Yamuna floodplain damage due to the cultural extravaganza — the World Culture Festival — held on the banks of the Yamuna in Delhi in 2016.  A team of experts has testified to the National Green Tribunal that the event, which included a 7-acre stage for musicians and dancers and sprawled across 1,000 acres, had “completely destroyed” the riverbed.  They said reversing the damage will take at least 10 years and about 42 crores.  The Rediff.com : 20th.
