Sri Sri Ravishankar’s Art of Living foundation has termed green panel’s report on damages to the Yamuna river bed caused by ‘World Cultural Festival’ as unscientific and illogical.
The seven member committee appointed by national green body said that the area was completely destroyed, and not just damaged.

Lawyers representing the organisation demanded a fresh probe by an ‘unbiased’ panel.
They also claimed that report was contradicting its own earlier findings. “The area was notified as floodplains and not wetlands. In the Delhi Wetland Atlas there is no mention of any wetlands at the site where the event was held,” Art of Living’s lawyer Kota Desai said. The organisation wants more proof from the green panel to back the latter’s claim of extensive damage to the Yamuna riverbed.
