Justive V.R. Krishna Iyer: I beseech Prime Minister to reconsider the stand taken if any already. This is a matter of political party business or popularity or pro-American yen?the grave issue with which the nation shall defend its survival.
Justice K.T. Thomas: It is our duty to make an in-depth study of all possible repercussions before destroying the natural geological formations. That apart, the religious sentiments of the majority community in India that Lord Rama created such sea wall must be honoured and respected.
Sir A.R. Mudaliar Committee Report 1956: Choose canal, not mid-ocean channel passage
* Shifting sandbanks
* No possibility of construction of protective works? definite navigational hazard
* Channel would border on the Sethusamudram Medial Line.
?In these circumstances we have no doubt, whatsoever that the junction between the two sea should be effected by a canal; and the idea of cutting a passage in the sea through Adam'sBridge should be abandoned.?
