Ram Setu Affidavit : Heads roll !

15 09 2007

Two senior officials of the ASI have been suspended in connection with the Ram Setu affidavit blunder that I posted about earlier this week. More heads are likely to roll for the drama that has put the UPA government in trouble.Union Minister for Culture Ambika Soni has ordered an inquiry and will meet Congress President Sonia Gandhi to explain the facts of the case. Her ministry had made statements in the affidavit questioning the existence of Lord Ram and the Ramayana.

According to sources, Ambika Soni had asked for some changes to be made in the affidavit before it was submitted to the Supreme Court. The two ASI officials have been suspended for not making those changes.

On Friday, the government withdrew its affidavits and told the Supreme Court it would like to review the Sethusamudram project so that the Ram Setu will not be disturbed.
