President Mukherjee to skip ‘Art of Living’ culture Fest

, 6:11 PM IST

New Delhi : President Pranab Mukherjee will not be attending the cultural festival being organised by the Art of Living Foundation later this week.

According to the Art of Living founded by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, President Mukherjee had agreed to give the valedictory speech at the World Culture Festival, which will be held on the Yamuna floodplains in East Delhi from March 11 to 13.

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) is hearing a case for shifting the venue of the event as construction is banned on the floodplains.

The festival will bring together people from different cultures, nations, and faiths as a one world family in a resounding message of peace. (ANI)
