Indian Union Minister for Road Transport, Highways and Shipping Nitin Gadkari said Ram Sethu will not be broken for the proposed Sethu Samudram Shipping Canal Project and a decision on the new alignment will be taken in the next one month.

Addressing a televised press conference the minister said that he will visit the site of Ram Sethu before forwarding the proposal to Union Cabinet and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

He said that Union government has given Rail India Technical and Economic Service the task of identifying alternative routes to save the structure.

The proposal to build the Sethusamudram shipping canal project for dredging was for navigation of large ships and creating fishing and shipping harbours in the coastal areas.

The minister said that there are four to five alternatives and a decision will be worked out without destroying Ram Sethu, which is a continuous stretch of limestone shoals that runs from Rameshwaram island to Mannar off the northern coast of Sri Lanka.
