NEW DELHI, October 17

Barely a week after an expert committee was constituted to record all objections and suggestions to the controversial Sethusamudram project, it has received nearly a dozen of them at its Chennai-based office.

“We have received 11 views on the Sethusamudram project. These include both objections and complaints against the project as well as suggestions. The committee will accept these views till October 31 in writing and then also hold personal hearing. The committee will come up with a final report by November 11 as stipulated and this will be submitted to the apex court,” said a committee member on the condition on anonymity.

The member, however, refused to elaborate on the nature of views received and the individuals/organisations that had sent them.
