India land of scams, slums: Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

IANS  |  New Delhi 

"The country has become a land of scams and slums and it is ironical that just for a vote bank political parties are giving tickets to those who have criminal cases against them," said Sri Sri Ravi Shankar here.

He was interacting with rowdy sheeters at a programme organised by The Art of Living and Delhi Police to change their lives through meditation.

"There are 220 parliamentarians with criminal charges. The criminality and corruption can be changed with serenity and sanity which comes through spirituality," he said.

He said that political parties and leaders have to keep their nation first before their interests.

"The face of Indian democracy will change if there is sacrifice on the part of political leaders," he added.

He underlined the need for spirituality in politics which claimed bring progress in the country.

"Through meditation we are trying to bring positive change in the lives of these rowdy sheeters who can overcome their ill habits," he said.

Over 750 offenders registered in 16 police stations in east Delhi have attended meditation sessions organised by the Art of Living.
