Union Water Resources Minister Uma Bharti ‘thanked’ Sri Sir Ravi Shankar’s Art of Living (AOL) Foundation for turning Yamuna Bank into a much cleaner site.

She visited the place, where World Cultural festival was held, on June 5.



She further said that the site has turned into a levelled ground and suggested that it can turned into public amusement facility.


Bharti went ahead and applauded the spiritual guru for setting a very big example before the country by cleaning dirtiest site in Delhi.



AOL’s three-day festival stirred controversy after the foundation was charged of hurting the biodiversity of the river.

National Green Tribunal (NGT) even directed the foundation to deposit an environment compensation of Rs. 4 crore.

When asked about the same, Bharti said, “The green body has a right to do so. But I am sure the committee appointed by the NGT itself will brief it of the reality. I am here I can see the reality.”
