The Delhi Police has warned of "stampede", "pandemonium" and "utter chaos" unless shortcomings in the arena for the World Culture Festival, being organised by Art of Living Foundation on the Yamuna floodplains. In a letter to the Ministry of Urban Development after an inspection of the venue, along with the organisers, on March 1, police redflagged the "shortcomings", saying the stage, where the Prime Minister and several VVIPs are to be seated, lacks a structural stability certificate. The Central Public Works Department, Delhi government and Delhi Development Authority have refused to give the festival stage the mandatory structural stability certificate. The inspection team also observed that the organisers had initially promised seven pontoon bridges on the Yamuna. But so far only one pontoon bridge had been made and work on another pontoon bridge was underway.
