“We have not done anything wrong. We have been taintless and will remain so. We we will go to jail but not pay a penny,” said Ravi Shankar.

The National Green Tribunal on Thursday told the Art of Living (AOL) that it has time till tomorrow to deposit Rs 5 crore fine, failing which law will take its own course. The tribunal, however, refused to give urgent hearing to a fresh plea seeking stay on the event on the ground that it had not taken requisite permission from fire department, CPWD and Police.

The NGT also asked CPCB, MoEF and DPCC to issue a proper direction to the AOL with regard to disposal of municipal waste.

The NGT on Wednesday imposed a fine of Rs five crore on AOL as environmental compensation while clearing the decks for its three-day cultural extravaganza. Responding to the fine imposed, Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said that he is ready to go to jail but ‘won’t pay a single penny’.

“We have not done anything wrong. We have been taintless and will remain so. We we will go to jail but not pay a penny,” said Ravi Shankar.
