New Delhi: Narendra Modi is unlikely to attend the Art of Living’s mega World Culture Festival organised by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Security concerns are being reportedly cited as the reason for Modi’s nonattendance.
According to news reports, the Special Protection Group, which provides security to the Prime Minister, has cited security concerns.
