Ram Sethu: Centre walks on tightrope

The Union Government is considering the Supreme Court's advice to choose a different route for Sethusamudram project in a bid to save the Ram Sethu. And the environmentalists say that this may spell disaster.

The Ram the bridge is believed to have been built by Lord Ram's vanar sena on the Bay of Bengal. If the Centre has its way, the stretch behind will be cut across to allow ships to sail through.

Devotees call it an outrage on their faith. They want the Government to choose another route that will leave the bridge of faith intact.

In fact, five of the six original proposals have left this bridge intact.

The devotees visiting Danushkodi are hopeful that Ram Sethu would be saved. The Supreme Court has asked the Centre to consider a new route, between the fourth and fifth alignments for the Sethusamudram channel. Natia
