Rama Setu: destruction gang
Statement of Dr. Subramanian Swamy, President of Janata Party, made in Chennai on August 28, 2007 (press release dt 28 august)
…4. The anti-Hindu Gang of Four of Sonia Gandhi, M.Karunanidhi, T.R.Baalu, and Ambika Sonia are hell-bent to destroy the Rama Setu by hook or crook.
Alarmed by the Madras High Court First Bench observation (while issuing Notice to the Union Government on my PIL filed against the Sethusamudram Canal alignment through the Rama Setu) that the Setu should not be touched till my PIL has been fully heard and decided upon, this unholy satanic Gang of Four are in a hurry to present the Supreme Court (now hearing the PIL] with a fait accompli by blowing up the Rama Setu with RDX and destroying it.
Hence, I am approaching the Apex Court on August 31st to seek a formal injunction against the execution of the project, since the Government is bent on committing this treachery.
5. The Gang of Four have already been caught telling the nation a number of lies about the project. One lie was the claim that US NASA had sent an e-mail to the Government stating the Setu formation was not constructed, but a natural geographical evolution. On August 3, this year I visited NASA in Houston, Texas and the authorities there told me that they had never sent any such e-mail, and that to infer any such fact about the Setu is a “misrepresentation and mischievous”. They also sent me an e-mail to confirm the above clarification.
6. Moreover, even if the Setu is a natural formation, it is still holy and sacred for Hindus just as the ice-Linga formed naturally in Amarnath Cave is holy and sacred. This also the Supreme Court’s view stated in a 1958 judgment delivered against atheist and anti-national DK leader E.V.Ramaswami Naicker.
