Sonia Gandhi’s dream mission fails as the Modi govt says that it won’t damage the Ram Sethu

The government told the Supreme Court that it will not touch the ancient Ram Sethu, an underwater coral formation in the Indian Ocean referred to in the mythology Ramayana, for the implementation of the Sethusamudram Ship Channel Project.

The government said cutting a route through the Ram Sethu, also known as Adam’s Bridge, would be a cause for “socio-economic disadvantage”.

This is part of a one-page affidavit filed by the Shipping Ministry almost four years after the Supreme Court asked the government to “come clean” on the choice of the project’s route and whether it would damage the Ram Sethu.

The Union Ministry of Shipping, in its affidavit, told a bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra that the PIL filed by BJP leader Dr Subramanian Swamy against the Sethusamudram project can now be disposed off by taking note of its stand.

Today SC was told by Govt Ram Setu will not be touched. I finally after 20 years have concluded my case listed Transfer WP No. 26&27 of 2006

“That the government of India intends to explore an alternative to the earlier alignment of Sethusamudram Ship Channel project without affecting/damaging the Adam’s Bridge/Ram Sethu in the interest of the nation,” the affidavit filed by the ministry said.

Additional Solicitor General Pinky Anand, appearing for the Centre, said that the Centre has filed the response in pursuance of the earlier directions and the PIL can now be disposed off. Swamy had filed a PIL against the ship channel project and had sought direction to the Centre that the mythological Ram Sethu be not touched.

Superb sir. We can never forget your role in saving Ram Setu and If Ramayana is to be written today, Valmiki will write about your contribution. Jai Shri Ram. Please accept our humble thanks

In 2016, the apex court had granted Mr. Swamy liberty to approach the court if the Centre as much as “touched” Ram Sethu during the project implementation. Dr. Swamy had requested the court for a mandamus to direct the government “to follow any other alternative route or alignment without affecting or destroying or demolishing the historic and sacred place Ram Sethu”.

Dr. Swamy had alleged that the National Institute of Oceanography (NIO) had completed the study and handed over the report to the Government in March 2009. He had voiced apprehensions that the report may never be submitted in the Supreme Court as the consequences may be to the scrap the project itself.
The Supreme Court had also wanted to know the government’s position on whether the ancient Ram Sethu could be declared a national monument.
