The Supreme Court on Wednesday agreed to list on July 26, the plea filed by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy seeking 'national monument' status for Ram Setu. .The matter was mentioned by Swamy before Chief Justice of India (CJI) NV Ramana (CJI) seeking listing of the case."List on July 26," the CJI said after initially stating in lighter vein to list the case after his retirement. Swamy was assisted by advocate Satya Sabharwal..Ram Setu (known as Adam's Bridge), which is a chain of limestone shoals off the south-eastern coast of Tamil Nadu, is revered by Hindus. As per Ramayana, the Ram Setu was built by Lord Ram to reach Lanka after Ravan had abducted Lord Ram's wife, Sita Devi. .Swamy had earlier challenged before the top court, the Sethusamudram Shipping Canal project which had the potential to damage the Setu.Under the Sethusamudram project, an 83-km-long deep water channel was to be created, linking the Mannar Strait with Palk Strait, by extensive dredging and removal of the limestone shoals which constitute the Setu.The Central government eventually told the Supreme Court in 2018 that it will explore alternate ways for the project, without touching the Ram Setu.
