The Centre on Tuesday told the Supreme Court that it had already come to the conclusion that the Ram Sethu [Images] doesn't fulfill the criteria for being declared a national monument. "As far as we are concerned, the stand of the government is very clear that the Ram Sethu could not fulfil the criteria of a national monument," senior advocate Fali S Nariman, appearing for the Centre, told a bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan. Further, on the issue of an alternative alignment to avoid the destruction of Ram Sethu for the Sethusamudram project, he said, so far, he has not received any instruction from the government. Nariman said that he would receive some instructions by today evening or Wednesday.

First of all who is eligible to declare that it is a national monument or not ??? secularism implies that we should respect the faith behind Ram's bridge, as much as I respect Prophet Mohammed's holy relic and any Christian belief. Can anyone question whether Jesus Christ was actually crucified over a mound at a particular place? None would, for billions believe in the place and the incident. would they belive only if it wud be declared as national monument ?? they are ready to put any rubbish idea...just to oppose BJP.
