Save Sethu Samuthiram Project Save India sign now

Setu samudran [shipping canal project] has been approved by the Government of India In this project Palk Gulf and Gulf Mennar will be linked by making a shipping canal through Rameshwaram Island. This will allow ships and boats to navigate in the passage between India and Sri Lanka without having to circle Sri Lanka (as is being done currently). This may save about 400 nautical miles voyage on the East coast.

This project will connect the National Sea Route. It will also connect National highways. The length of the sea route for ships will be shortened by this canal. Rs. 21 crore per year for fuel expenditure of ships will be saved. Today India imports a big quantity of crude oil. Saving of fuel will save foreign currency. The time taken by ships will also decrease by 16 hours, therefore the number of ships navigating is also expected to increase.

Also Southern part of the country will grow at a faster pace. Tuticorin port and other smaller ports will be benifited. There are so many other benefits also in it. Please do not let this project down because of the pressure from religious fundamentalists.

Also there are so many unethical ways followed by the religious fundamentalists to stop this project at any cost. One such is saying that there is a man maded structure and it was confirmed by NASA. But NASA has distant itself from this and has denied that it has said that the bridge like structure is in fact a natural formation. See the folowing link to nasa webpage.

Still our media are propogating the idea put forth by the religious fundamentalists.
