Setu project is national security threat. Scrap project. Prosecute TR Baalu and recover Rs. 800 crores spent so far – Dr. Subramanian Swamy

Press Release 31 Jan. 2008

Now that the Director General of the Coast Guard Admiral Homi Contractor has categorically and clearly stated that the Setu Samudram Project is a security threat to the nation, confirming my allegations made earlier in the Madras High Court and subsequently in the Supreme Court, I would demand that the Prime Minister intervene and order scrapping the Project forthwith.

The Rs.800 crores that have been spent so far have been done at the behest of the Union Shipping and Transport Minister Mr.T.R.Baalu without security clearance from the armed forces and intelligence agencies as well as without obtaining prior clearance of the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board, and hence the amount should be recovered by prosecuting Mr.T.R.Baalu and by attaching his assets and his benami companies.
