Bhopal, May 9 (UNI) Former Bharatiya Janata Party president M Venkaiah Naidu today suggested that the Centre's Congress-led United Progressive Alliance regime should adopt a three-point formula on the Ram Sethu issue.
''An alternative route should be created for the Sethusamudram Project, the Archaeological Survey of India should be directed to undertake a profound study towards declaring the Sethu a national heritage structure and Supreme Court directives must be heeded,'' he told reporters here.
Mr Naidu demanded the resignation of Union Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss in the wake of the apex court's recent ruling that ''proved'' the Centre conspired to destroy the nature of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences by drafting legislation in an allegedly improper manner to trouble the then director P Venugopal.
''Capability, popularity and public acceptance will be the principal basis for allocation of tickets in the Madhya Pradesh polls. The main issues will be inflation and the Centre's discrimination against non-Congress governments and development,'' said Mr Naidu who is the party's state incharge.
The Madhya Pradesh government and BJP organisation would chalk out a time-bound programme under ''Mission 2008'' to underline the regime's public-interest work and the Centre's failures including on the security front.
He expressed confidence that the BJP's first absolute majority government in southern India would be formed in Karnataka.
