President Pranab Mukherjee will not attend the World Cultural Festival which is organised by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar of Art of Living in the wake of a controversy over holding the function on the Yamuna flood plains beginning. An official of the Rashtrapati Bhavan said the President cannot attend the function due to unavoidable circumstances. However, Mukherjee had earlier agreed to attend the valedictory ceremony. While the organizers expect lakhs of people to attend the function, concerns have been raised by experts about the likely damage to the environment caused by holding it on the flood plains of the already polluted river in east Delhi.
