SC to consider Swamy’s plea for giving Ram Sethu national heritage status after 3 months

PTI
The Supreme Court today said it will consider after three months the plea of BJP leader Subramanian Swamy seeking a direction to the Centre for declaring Ram Sethu a national heritage monument. Ram Sethu is a chain of limestone shoals between coasts of India and Sri Lanka. According to the epic Ramayana, the Ram Sethu bridge was built by the Monkey army to rescue Sita, who was kidnapped by Ravana.


A bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde took note of the submissions of Swamy that his interim application be listed for urgent hearing for declaring the Sethu a national heritage monument by the Archaeological Survey of India. The BJP leader submitted that he has already won the first round of the litigation in which the Centre accepted the existence of Ram Sethu. Mr Swamy had earlier raised the issue of declaring Ram Sethu as a national monument in his PIL against the controversial Sethusamudram Ship Channel project, initiated by the UPA-I government.
