Centre seeks time from SC to spell stand on Sethusamudram project

New Delhi, Nov 26 (IANS) The Centre on Thursday sought four weeks’ time to spell out its stand on the controversial Sethusamudram project initiated to facilitate navigation between India’s east and west coasts.

Additional Solicitor General Pinaki Anand requested for time while seeking an adjournment on Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy’s application to seek an end to the hearing in the matter after the government’s statement in parliament that it was abandoning the project.

Swamy moved the apex court to challenge the project on the basis of religious belief that a ‘Ram Sethu’ – believed to have been built by Lord Rama’s army to cross the Palk Strait into Sri Lanka – exists in the area and sought a national heritage status for it.
