New Delhi :  Supreme Court while transferring  a batch of petitions to protect Ram Sethu from  Madras High Court, requested central government to consider to declare  Ram Sethu as National Monumennt after making minor alterations in the project’s intended course

While the batch of petitions in the High Court had sought certain minor alterations in the project’s course to protect the bridge, a petition in the apex court has raised serious doubts over the environmental impact of the channel.

The petitioners maintained that they were not against the project but only wanted certain minor change in the course of the bridge to avoid damage to the Rama setu. The suggested alterations by them would also reduce the distance of the Sethusamudram project by atleast 30 kms thus saving huge public money.

Two of the three petitions in the High Court against the project was filed by Janta Party President Subramanian Swami.
