It's a big relief for Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the NGT has allowed the event to take place at Yamuna flood-plains.
In its order, the NGT has imposed an interim fine of Rs 5 crores on the Sri Sri foundation for flouting norms. The NGT its order said that the floodplain have been drastically tampered with. Aquatic life in the area has been destroyed, and, here lies the irony an event, which has openly violated rules at multiple levels has been supported by the government.
And should the government still sponsor a foundation which has been caught on the wrong side of the law?
