The Supreme Court today directed the Government of India to file a status report so as to what is the feasibility of an alternative route for the shipping channel without touching Ram Sethu. The government has so far failed to file the said report. During the arguments Subramaniun Swamy also demanded that Ram Setu be declared as a national monument. The court said, let the govt file a status report first. Subramaniun Swamy went on to say that the High Court and the Supreme Court had accepted his demand to consider declaring Ram Setu a national monument.
Matter shall be taken up next on 27th March.
