The women's wing of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) organised a Tiranga and Mashaal Yatra at Connaught Place (CP) on Wednesday.

Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar opposed the proposed move by the state government to amend the Karnataka Land Revenue Act 1964 to denotify dried lakes and water bodies.

All efforts should be made to rejuvenate the lakes." The Art of Living has taken up an initiative to rejuvenate lakes and rivers for the last four years, he said.
