CBI ropes in Art of Living to boost positivity among officers, director to be part of workshop
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is oraganising an Art of Living workshop for more than 100 senior CBI officers.
In a press release, India's premier investigation agency said that the workshop is being organised to "improve positivity, enhance synergy and generate a healthy atmosphere" within its ranks.
The CBI said that the workshop will help staff to "achieve their full potential".
Over 150 officers, from the rank of inspectors to interim CBI director Nageshwar Rao will be attending the workshop, which will be held at the CBI headquarters in New Delhi.
The workshop will be held between November 10 and 12.
In its press release, CBI has said that the Art of Living workshop will build "synergy, competency and positive outlook" among CBI officials.
The CBI has been in focus for past few weeks thanks to a high-profile, bitter and public feud between CBI Director Alok Verma and his deputy, Special Director Rakesh Asthana. The government sent both of them on mandatory leave.
Art of Living Foundation is an NGO run by Sri Sri Ravishankar.
The NGO and Sri Sri Ravishankar were embroiled in a controversy in 2016. Art Of Living's World Cultural Festival was held on the Yamuna flood plains in New Delhi from March 11 to March 13, 2016 to celebrate 35 years of its service.
The event is said to have caused massive damage to the floodplains and National Green Tribunal had served notices to Art of Living. It had also imposed a fine of Rs 5 crore.
