Hoshiarpur, Jan 16 (UNI) Minister for Tourism and Cultural Affairs Ambika Soni today said she had recently received the report on the relevance of Ram Setu from an expert committee and she would submit its findings to the Union Cabinet for taking further action in this regard, after going through it.
The committee had to submit its report within three-month of its formation which ended today. Some more time should have been given to the committee to ascertain whether Ram Setu was a man-made structure or a natural body in the sea, she asserted.
Archaeological survey of India should also thoroughly make investigations in this regard to bring reality before the public, she said.
None of the political party should exploit this issue for gaining political mileage, she appealed.
Ms Soni, here to address a rally of party workers, while responding to media queries, admitted that the ministry headed by her had wrongly filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court regarding the relevance of Ram Setu which was later withdrawn and according to coutr's directive a committee comprising eminent scholars on the subject had been constituted to find out the relevance of the Ram Setu.
