Bhubaneswar,November 14(Odisha.in) RSS has lighted as many as 1001 Deepa for prayer here at the historic Khandgiri caves on the outskirt of the Temple City.
Took oath to fight against the evil designs being planted by the Congress led UPA Government at Centre and DMK backed MKarunanidhi led Government in Tamil Nadu over the Rs 2.427 crorers Sethu Samundram Shipping Canal Project.
RSS leaders while observing the Dussehra here, said that the Government and its allies are serving the interests of the Americans and the Chinese through the Sethusamudram project.
“When the common people, scientists, environmentalists and archaeologists are vouching for the existence of the Ram Sethu and the grave dangers posed by its proposed breaking, Union Minister T R Baalu and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister
Karunanidhi are bent upon rubbishing them and trying to thrust their dictatorship.
Do such ministers have a right to continue in their offices?” Puri Bibhaga Boudhika Pramukha Kushna Chandra Nayak asked.
He also claimed that the Sethusamudram project doesn’t make any economic sense as is being claimed by the UPA Government.
He dwelt at length on how the project will endanger the rich thorium deposits along the coast that can revolutionise India’s nuclear programme.
Other speakers observed that the US is trying to strengthen its control over the Indian Ocean through the proposed waterway and is pressuring the Indian Government to push the project.
Similarly, China, which has set up its strategic base at the Coco Island near Myanmar, too, will be greatly helped by the project since it is planning to build a modern port on an island near Sri Lanka, they said.
