Bhubaneswar, September 9 ( Odisha.in
) The Orissa unit of VHP and RSS have given call for three hour long Chakkajam
all over the State on September 12, to press their demand for scrapping of Setu
Samudram project of the Union Government.
Jagadguru Shankaracharya of Puri , Swami Nischalananda
Saraswati have already announced his moral support to the movement. This was announced at a media conference on Saturday by VHP
State secretary Gouri Prasad Rath .
He said that the belief that the setu was a bridge built by
the Vanar Sena as per the Ramayana is unquestionable, . The Setu is not just an
issue of religious faith, it also has a high security value for the nation as
it contains rich reserve of thorium used as a nuclear fuel and is a natural
barrier against disasters like tsunami.
The VHP warned the Union Government against playing with the sentiments of
Hindus and demanded immediate scrapping of the project, which, it said, would
damage the Ram Setu in the Palk Straits.
