In view of the recent Sabarimala stampede, spiritual leader His Holiness Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, today urged that "Temple Devaswom Boards be constituted by spiritual leaders. Let the government oversee it. Earlier too lack of proper infrastructure has led to mishaps in Andhra Pradesh, Punjab and Rajasthan. Yet we have not learnt our lesson."
