Supreme Court agrees to hear PIL trying to have Ram Setu declared a national heritage site
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to list for hearing the PIL filed by former Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swami, who is asking for direction from the Center to designate Ram Sethu as a national heritage site.
Board of Chief Judge D.Yu. Chandrachuda and Judges P.S. Narasimha and J.B. Pardiwala took note of the submissions of the BJP leader who mentioned the issue, saying that the government has not yet taken any decision.
Swami said that the Center had been putting this matter on hold for over nine years. “We will put him on the list in advance,” the judge said.
On January 19, the Center told the Supreme Court that it was considering declaring Ram Setu a national heritage site.
The Supreme Court asked the BJP leader to make a presentation to the government if he so desired.
The court also asked the Center to make a decision on the matter and gave Swami the freedom to approach him again if he was dissatisfied and dismissed his interim application on the matter.
Ram Setu, also known as Adam’s Bridge, is a chain of limestone shoals between Pamban Island off the southeast coast of Tamil Nadu and Mannar Island off the northwest coast of Sri Lanka.
